Comprehensive Prevention

Comprehensive Prevention Requirements

Per our funders, recipients of the OVW Campus Program grant must provide mandatory prevention and education programming for all incoming students about sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking that includes information, awareness, and resources including student code of conduct, as well as have a mechanism to account for all students' participation in this programming. Campuses must also provide ongoing prevention programming and bystander intervention programming.

Our team are already implementing the majority of these requirements, through the Husky Prevention & Response Courses, which launched across the UW system in Fall 2021. Our staff preventionist also provides all incoming students a workshop entitled, "Creating a Violence-Free UWB", which discusses consent, bystander intervention, and resources. Our preventionist, working with the HEROs, can provide ongoing training and workshops on healthy relationships and bystander intervention. 

Goals for Comprehensive Prevention

By the end of year 1 of the OVW grant, we will have a strong map and understanding of existing prevention programming, gaps, and strengths.

By the end of year 2, we will have used the results of our evaluation of prevention training to improve the quality of our programming, particularly centering improving effectiveness for LGBTQIA+ students, students of color, international students, and students with disabilities, and increase men's participation in prevention and response programming.

By the end of year 3, we will have increased the reach of our programming to include faculty and staff, key social influencers among students, and invite them to participate in a comprehensive approach to prevention education.
