Changing Campus Culture: Ohio Summit

fixed-headerrRepresentatives form over 75 colleges and universities in Ohio gathered last week in Columbus, Ohio for the 2016 Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Summit.  As a follow-up to the Ohio Department of Higher Education‘s recently released report Changing Campus Culture: Preventing and Responding to Sexual Violence, the Summit supports colleges and universities in the development of plans to prevent and respond to sexual violence.

Alex Leslie of the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, Ann Brandon of the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence, PreventConnect’s David Lee and Vanessa Stampel of the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center all presented at the summit.

I had the opportunity to provide the “Prevention Keynote” where I discussed why prevention needs to be intentional, strategic and comprehensive. As colleges and universities focus on addressing sexual violence, we must remember that responding is not enough to prevent sexual violence from taking place.

Later this year, the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence will provide further training on prevention and response, and the Ohio Domestic Violence Network will provide support for campuses in implementing climate surveys.
