This webinar will introduce a toolkit that addresses the prevention needs of the diverse student populations that attend study abroad programs. It focuses on studying abroad, an exciting opportunity that provides students with rich opportunities to see the world, improve language proficiency, and be immersed in new cultures. Yet, the experience is also marked by a heightened risk for interpersonal violence for many. Colleges often do not implement prevention strategies tailored specifically for study abroad programs despite this risk.

To address this gap, Alteristic, Inc. created the Toolkit for Preventing Interpersonal Violence among Students Studying Abroad for the United States Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women’s Campus Program.

Este seminario va a presentar la caja de herramientas que responde a las necesidades de diversas poblaciones estudiantiles que participan de programas en el extranjero. Se enfoca en estudiar en el extranjero, una oportunidad excitante que provee a estudiantes de oportunidades ricas para ver el mundo, mejorar su proficiencia en un idioma, y estar inmersos/as en una nueva cultura. Aun así, la experiencia también está marcada por un alto riesgo de violencia interpersonal para muchos. Las universidades muchas veces no implementan estrategias de prevención enfocadas para estudiantes con programas en el extranjero aún con este riesgo.

Para atender esta brecha, Alteristic, Inc. creo la Caja de herramientas para prevenir violencia interpersonal entre estudiantes en el extranjero para el Departamento de Justicia de Estados Unidos, Oficina contra la Violencia hacia la Mujer Programa Campus.

Sexual harassment, abuse, and assault can have short- and long-term physical, emotional, and psychological effects on a person’s well-being and impact an entire community, from the culture and connections between people to the economic toll. Preventing sexual violence means we all must address deep-rooted abuses of power that contribute to inequities in health, safety, and well-being. A health equity approach to preventing sexual violence means that we need to both understand and address the factors that contribute to violence and safety and factors that expose some communities — especially communities that have been historically oppressed — to higher rates of sexual violence.

Neurodiversity within Campus Coordinated Community Response Team Efforts will introduce audiences to the “Neurodiversity Paradigm” while drawing on disability justice principles, the work of autistic liberation activists, and lived experience. With a foundation of historical, modern, and linguistic context, we will dive into how systemic ableism shows up on college campuses for students, faculty, and staff, as well as within domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking cases. This webinar will actively challenge the “Pathological Paradigm” which dominates conversations about autism, ADHD, and other learning disabilities. We will explore strategies to challenge systemic ableism and facilitate inclusive spaces within your Campus Coordinated Community Response Team.
A distinctly anti-oppression and intersectional perspective make this training suitable for anyone with any level of personal or professional experience with neurodivergence.

Date: April 7, 2021

In Fall of 2020, the Department of Education rescinded the Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting, subregulatory guidance on how to comply with the Clery Act. Even so, Clery Act regulations still require institutions to identify what roles on campus meet the definition of campus security authorities (CSAs), individuals required to report under the Clery Act. As a result of the Handbook rescission, some institutions reexamined their own approach to identifying CSAs. During this webinar participants will:

  • Review the four components of the Clery Act definition of campus security authority as defined in the regulations and reiterated in the Clery Act Appendix to the Federal Student Aid Handbook.
  • Discuss campus practices for identifying campus security authorities according to the Clery Act definition.
  • Practice evaluating job descriptions to determine if a role meets the Clery Act definition of campus security authority and documenting or communicating their decisions.

En otoño de 2020, el Departamento de Educación rescindió el Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting (Manual para la presentación de informes de seguridad en el campus), una guía subreglamentaria sobre cómo cumplir con la Ley de Clery. La normativa de la Ley de Clery sigue exigiendo a las instituciones que identifiquen qué funciones en el campus se ajustan a la definición de autoridades de seguridad del campus (CSA) ((por su sigla en inglés)), personas que deben informar en virtud de la Ley de Clery. Como resultado de la supresión del Manual, algunas instituciones reexaminaron su propio enfoque para identificar a las CSA.
Durante este webinar los participantes:

  • Revise los cuatro componentes de la definición de autoridad de seguridad del campus de la Ley Clery, tal como se define en la normativa y se reitera en el Apéndice de la Ley Clery del Manual de Ayuda Federal para Estudiantes.
  • Discutir las prácticas del campus para identificar a las autoridades de seguridad del campus según la definición de la Ley Clery.
  • Practicar la evaluación de las descripciones de los funciones para determinar si una función cumple la definición de autoridad de seguridad del campus de la Ley Clery y documentar o comunicar sus decisiones.

Faculty, staff, and students often cross state lines with their children to attend college, for summer/holiday breaks, or to flee from abuse. Survivors of domestic and sexual violence will benefit when campus and community partners improve their ability to respond to interstate legal issues. The webinar on interstate custody issues will provide participants with an overview of the federal and state laws that apply. It will be designed for campus CCRTs and community partners who wish to understand the basic framework of how these laws fit together, with an emphasis on how campus and community partners can work together to assist survivors in such complex cases. Case scenarios will be used to demonstrate how practitioners can help survivors address the economic, safety and legal issues involved when they cross state or tribal lines with their children.

This webinar will explore the unique strengths and opportunities of implementing comprehensive CCRTs on rural campuses and offer facilitation strategies designed to strengthen team communication and connection.

Host TA Provider: Cultural Competency (Casa de Esperanza)
Presenter: Kaitlin Shetler, VERA Institute for Justice

Student survivors of sexual assault with disabilities remain largely invisible to campus organizations and systems designed to support survivors. This webinar will explore the unique dynamics of sexual assault of students with disabilities and discuss common barriers that survivors with disabilities experience when accessing support and healing from campus programs and services. This webinar will also explore solutions that educational institutions can implement to address barriers and ensure that they are equipped to meet the needs of all student who experience sexual assault.

Host TA Provider: CU Denver
Presenter: Anneliese Brown, VERA Institute for Justice

The purpose of this webinar is to provide campus-based Coordinated Community Response Teams (CCRTs) with practical information on how to enhance the accessibility of the campus response to gender-based violence, and how to ensure CCRT meetings are accessible and welcoming to team members with disabilities. This will include information on disability and Deaf culture and the risks, unique tactics, and barriers faced by student survivors. The webinar will also discuss implications for the CCRT’s work and identify steps for achieving access.

Facilitator: MCSR
Presenter: Greerlin Thomas and Pat McGann

The focus of this webinar is to provide grantees with strategies for working with campus men around the topic of gender-based violence, discuss possible barriers and challenges they may face, provide them with tools for overcoming these barriers and challenges, as well as provide them with further resources for engaging campus men.

Host TA Provider: Casa de Esperanza

Host TA Provider: Casa de Esperanza
Presenter: Hieu Pham, Assistant Director, Monsoon Asians & Pacific Islanders in Solidarity (Monsoon)

Establishing culturally specific programs to provide services to victims/survivors of sexual violence and domestic violence have been an excellent practice in filling the gap in victim services.  But culturally-specific campus victim services for Asian & Pacific Islander communities are essentially non-existent.  Monsoon United Asian Women of Iowa has been in the forefront in creating culturally-specific services for API survivors/victims of sexual violence.  Monsoon has strengthened its services on Iowa campuses serving international students from Asia and students who identify as API, APA or Asian Americans by implementing a Peer-to-Peer Advocacy and Outreach Project, which will consist of direct services and community outreach and education.  The project is student-led and student-implemented to ensure that services are both age-appropriate and culturally-appropriate.

Host TA Provider: Casa de Esperanza
Presenter: Althea Hart

This webinar will provide an introduction to the It’s Your Business! HBCU Bystander Intervention Curriculum, sharing the process to develop the curriculum and the intention of the curriculum to approach bystander intervention through a culturally specific lens.

This webinar will summarize: i) general considerations for selecting and adapting climate survey measures, ii) considerations for adaptations important to understanding the experiences of specific student subgroups (e.g., LGBTQ students, marginalized racial/ethnic groups, marginalized religion groups), and iii) considerations for adaptations relevant to specific types of institutions, including community colleges and minority serving institutions.

This webinar will encourage discussion about:

  1. General philosophy and rationale for collaborating with administration
  2. Common challenges and potential solutions/recommendation related to garnering support for conducting climate surveys and dissemination findings
  3. Best practices for analyzing climate date and using findings to inform campus policy

Webinar content will be enhanced by sharing success stories and lessons learned.

Due to a glitch with the webinar platform, a small portion of this webinar recording contains garbled audio, which was also experienced during the session. We are working with the presenters to provide an additional transcript of the content covered during these portions. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the content, please reach out to them directly.

This webinar will present tools for both process and outcome evaluation of campus-based Coordinated Community Response Teams (CCRTs). Representatives from the University of Colorado Denver and the Rutgers/University of New Hampshire OVW Campus Program Technical Assistance Teams will help campus teams understand the various uses of assessment for improving the effectiveness of their CCRT. Participants will learn to use tools for understanding how their team is working together, including whether participants’ goals are being met and team members’ satisfaction with how meetings are conducted. Participants will also think through how to measure and tell the story of the impact of the work of their CCRT.

This webinar goes over the components of the Engaging Men in LGBT Communities Training Bundle and helps participants understand the various components of the bundle and breaks down how to facilitate the various exercises and activities within the bundle in order to better engage men in LGBT communities around issues of sexual and gender-based violence.

Presenter: Greerlin Thomas, Men Can Stop Rape

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will develop skills to engage LGBT men on campus around issues of gender-based violence through the dominant story and counter story framework
  2. Participants will become familiar with training tools in the Engaging LGBT Men Training Bundle and feel capable of using them.
  3. Participants will learn exercises and activities for engaging LGBT men as allies in addressing gender-based violence

In this webinar we explore an alternate approach to engaging men and framing masculinity. We discuss how CCR Teams can conceptualize masculinity as a person’s unhealthy/healthy behaviors, rather than as a person’s unhealthy/healthy identity. To do this we use the readiness-to-change model and consider how it can be implemented both within your CCRT itself and with your broader campus programming. Presented by Drew Rizzo from the University of New Hampshire in collaboration with University of Colorado Denver Center on Domestic Violence on September 22, 2016.

This fast-paced webinar is designed to assist campus-based Coordinated Community Response Teams (CCRTs) in better serving transgender survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking. Many campuses are committed to nurturing an inclusive campus community, but seek additional information to provide more competent prevention programs and response services for transgender and non-binary students and survivors.

This webinar primarily focuses on basic transgender concepts, but will include content specifically geared towards CCRTs on college campuses. Trans-specific sexual assault and intimate partner violence resources will be included, so CCRT’s can provide this information to the transgender survivors they work with, as well as to improve their repertoire of knowledge as victim service providers. This information presented will equip viewers with at least 5 free and easy things they can do to create services and environments that are more trans-welcoming and trans-supportive.

Learning Objectives:

  1. List three areas where campus-based CCRTs can make small changes to improve access to transgender survivors.
  2. State at least one statistic discussed in the webinar about the rates of violence within the transgender community.
  3. State two resources where campus CCRT members and other allied professionals can learn more about better serving transgender survivors.

This webinar will summarize key why campus climate surveys are important and what the field has learned from recent large, mutil-school surveys. The second half of the webinar will summarize methodological considerations and best practices in conducting climate surveys, such as instrument development, survey software options, strategies for maximizing response rates, marketing considerations, respondent recruitment and follow-ip, and protecting survivors.

Typically, men make up this significant part of a campus’ population, and effectively mobilizing them to address gender-based violence requires knowledge of them as a group. Conducting focus groups offers one strategy for building that knowledge. This webinar will offer general tips on conducting focus groups as well as more specific information about conducting focus groups in order to learn about mobilizing campus men.

The purpose of this webinar is to establish a foundational understanding of how an intersectional framework and approach can strengthen campus-based Coordinated Community Response Teams (CCRT).

While bystander intervention (BI) has become a popular strategy for preventing gender-based violence, we know from emerging research that men and boys embrace BI more slowly than women and girls. This webinar explores aspects of unhealthy masculinity that contribute to this and will provide participants with strategies based on healthy masculinity that help men and boys more quickly embrace BI and that build their skills to become better at intervening. The role of social and emotional learning and storytelling in relation to healthy masculinity and bystander intervention is also examined.



According to a 2010 study by the Department of Education, nearly 50% of college students are first generation college students. First generation college students are defined as students whose parents have not attended college or completed a bachelor’s degree. First generation college students have a number of intersecting identities that should be celebrated and supported within their campus community. Prevention educators in campus communities can develop content specifically with and for first generation college students to strengthen protective factors against interpersonal violence.

Small changes can make a big difference toward improving an institution’s investigation and adjudication process for campus sexual misconduct cases. This webinar will offer strategies for making your process more trauma-informed without additional costs or even revisions to the institution’s procedures. We will address why a trauma-informed process is important and simple ways you can improve upon your existing structures.

This webinar is based on the assumption that transformative and adult learning practices are two valuable methods of transforming masculine social norms as part of preventing sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. After learning the principles and practices of the two approaches, we will apply them to a dominant and counter story framework as it connects with healthy masculinity. We will also consider the challenges and benefits to using transformational and adult learning practices, and participants will be provided with an example of a practical exercise that uses transformational and adult learning practices to describe healthy masculinity.

This webinar focuses on preparing campus-based CCR teams to understand the impact of privacy and confidentiality on campus climate and survivor recovery, comply with the federal law and professional norms around information sharing, and to communicate effectively about violence on campus within the boundaries of professional confidentiality norms.

Presenter: Jessy Lyons, Green Dot, Inc.

This webinar explores ways to integrate prevention strategies into your work providing direct services to survivors on campus.

Facilitator: Men Can Stop Rape

Mobilizing campus men to prevent gender-based violence is something fairly new to the majority of colleges and universities. Many are only beginning to think about or implement strategies and practices, and many are wondering what other campuses are doing.

This webinar is a chance to learn. Three campuses – a small, liberal arts school, a large state school, and a historically black university – share their efforts to mobilize men.

Presenter: Rebecca Balog, Women of Color Network, Inc. in collaboration with University of Colorado Denver Center on Domestic Violence

During “A Discussion on Communities,” presenters discuss ways we can better identify communities in need, how to build better relationships, and what our barriers in reaching them are. People don’t come with barriers the way institutions and organizations do.

Most services and programs have some components set up to deal with community-specific barriers, but we have to shift our thinking from perceived “deficits” and turn the lens inward on overall programming and craft services that truly serve the full spectrum of needs that people in our constituencies, authentically.

Presenter: Farah Tanis and Sherine Powerful, Black Women’s Blueprint

This webinar is intended to assist with building colleges’ and universities’ capacity to center the identities and lived experiences of a variety of student groups in program delivery and the subsequent assessment of program compatibility and utilization.

Our aim is for each campus to be equipped to respond to the impact of relevant, population-specific, and intersectional factors like geography, transition, and history in addition to interpersonal, social, and cultural realities and beliefs about race, gender, and sexuality, among others, that can function both as challenges or assets in prevention and intervention initiatives for students.

Presenter: Abigail Boyer and Alison Kiss, Clery Center

In 2013, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) expanded the Clery Act to include additional rights for survivors o f sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. This webinar discusses:

    • Required elements within campus sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking policies for students and employees.
    • How to reflect your updated policies within this year’s annual security report.

Presenter: Vicky Banyard, University of New Hampshire

This webinar provides an overview of recent work on campus climate surveys and discusses different ways climate surveys can help campus work to respond to and prevent sexual assault, dating and domestic violence and stalking. Different climate survey instruments are discussed as well as new lessons learned from the field about how best to collect climate survey data. Strategies for resourcing surveys on campuses are also be presented.

College students live in a “noisy” environment, rife with messages communicated constantly through newly emerging technology. How can you effectively engage the men on campus in preventing gender-based violence when it’s such a “busy” space? Launching a well-conceived and well-run engaging men public awareness campaign can be a useful means of breaking through the “noise.”

Presenter: Darcie Folsom, Connecticut College in collaboration with Green Dot

Making the team can be tough. In this session, presenters explore “preseason conditioning” to get you ready to take the ice with strategies to create a solid foundation for a working partnership with Athletics. With “teamwork” your prevention work can be enhanced and positively impact campus culture while empowering athletes to see themselves as part of the solution.

The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disseminate an annual security report (ASR) describing their campus safety and security policies and procedures by October 1st. In this webinar, Alison Kiss and Abigail Boyer from the Clery Center for Security On Campus highlight how institutions can integrate the Violence Against Women Act amendments to the Clery Act into a comprehensive ASR. Through this recording, individuals can:

    • Determine if their institution’s ASR contains all the required disclosure statements and elements
    • Determine if their institution’s ASR contains all the required crime statistics data
    • Understand that their institution must distribute the ASR by October 1st
    • Develop effective distribution methods for current and prospective student and employee populations

This webinar discusses findings for the 2014 Campus Program focus groups on working with International Students. Dr. Joan Osa Oviawe discusses considerations for effectively engaging international students in violence prevention efforts on campus including: (1) Culture – understanding how the perceptions of international students towards violence and violence prevention are shaped by their home culture and modes of socialization, (2) Mainstreaming the culture of non-violence – how to recruit International students as effective allies and advocates for change in the campaign against violence, and (3) Orientation – how to help international students navigate the American system (reporting violence, law, police) so that they can become committed allies and navigators for ending violence in their communities.

Speaker: Dr. Victoria Banyard, University of New Hampshire

This webinar provides information on manageable ways to begin to think about evaluating your prevention programs and assessing their impact. Practical and actionable tools and suggestions will be provided.

This webinar explores how to use social marketing as a sexual violence preventions strategy. Using the Know Your Power ® Bystander Intervention Social Marketing Campaign (cola.unh.edu/prevention-innovations/bystander-store-posters) as an example, the webinar explores the components of social marketing, identify how to develop new and adapt existing social marketing campaigns, describe how to effectively disseminate social marketing campaigns, and learn how to evaluate social marketing campaigns to measure success. Specific emphasis focuses on creating and implementing social marketing campaigns that resonate with target audiences and effectively convey prevention goals.

This webinar provides participants with an intersectional framework, which can be used to build their capacity to address violence against women and students of color on their campuses. Using asset-based and participatory assessment models, the workshop will help examine campus readiness and present elements of culturally competent programs that can successfully engage a multiplicity of student identities. Participants will learn how the application of a cultural lens can positively impact the development and implementation of campus programming, learn strategies for creative, inclusive interventions that center the experiences of students of color as these relate to race and ethnicity, as well as other intersecting identities and dynamics. Participants will learn to understand the diversity of needs with which survivors of color may present, understand how to better organize their campus communities of color against violence against women, and shape institutional culture in order to be responsive to students of color.

How to Effectively Include Students in Development and Revision of Sexual Assault Policy

This webinar presented by CALCASA in collaboration with SAFER Campus and OVW Campus Grantees discusses the importance of students working together with their universities on sexual assault, dating violence and stalking policy. Recently in the media we have seen numerous news stories of college students vocalizing discontent with their universities about policy and response to sexual assault on campus. By being proactive with student involvement in policy, universities can create a more collaborative relationship with students to ensure their needs are being met on campus.
