        campus sexual assault


        ​Please join us for the inaugural meeting of the Wisconsin Campus Sexual Violence Consortium!

        October 24 @ UW-Oshkosh

        ​Cost: $30 (parking pass and lunch included)

         

        This meeting is intended for university/college employees and students, as well as Sexual Assault Service Providers (SASPs) who are actively engaged in a partnership with their local campus. Campus and SASP partners are encouraged to attend together.

        This meeting will provide an opportunity to:

        • Hear about sexual violence prevention and response on campuses throughout the state
        • Discuss emerging issues and share information/resources
        • Network with campuses of a similar size and structure to yours
        • Provide guidance on the Consortium's future direction

         

        REGISTER HERE by Wednesday, October 10

        Submit payment here by Wednesday, October 17

         

        Presentations and Discussions

        We also invite you to give a 30-minute presentation or lead a 15-minute discussion at the meeting! Presentations are an opportunity to share sexual-violence related work that is happening on your campus. Discussions can be used to ask a question or troubleshoot barriers with many other campus sexual violence professionals at once.

         

        SUBMIT PROPOSALS HERE by Friday, September 21

         

        If you have questions, contact Campus & Prevention Coordinator, Jessi Corcoran at jessic@wcasa.org.

        In April 2014, the White House issued a report—Not Alone: The First Report of the White House Task Force to Protect Students From Sexual Assault—which included recommendations and resources related to sexual assault on college campuses. The report focuses on the following four areas:

        1. Identify the scope of the problem on college campuses;
        2. help prevent campus sexual assault;
        3. help schools respond effectively when a student is assaulted;
        4. improve, and make more transparent, the federal government’s enforcement efforts.

        WCASA responded to the White House’s report by creating a short-term Campus Coordinator position to work at the local level across the state with campuses and community sexual assault service providers. While that position ended in 2015, WCASA continues to provide technical assistance and training regarding sexual assault on college campuses. For more information, please contact Jessi Corcoran, Prevention Coordinator.

        WCASA has also created a campus sexual assault listserv to build a network connecting campuses to one another and to sexual assault service providers. It’s a great place to share and request resources!
