Community Colleges: Opportunities for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention



Dr. Jill Biden has said that community colleges are “one of America’s best kept secrets”. When it comes to preventing campus sexual violence, though, community colleges are often left out of the conversation. These campuses face unique challenges when it comes to working to prevent sexual violence, but distinct opportunities are also present. Join us as we begin the conversation and discuss with experts working to prevent sexual and domestic violence on community college campuses how to overcome common challenges and utilize these opportunities for prevention.
