Campus Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention Consortium
The Campus Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention Consortium (Consortium) is a project between Prevention Innovations Research Center (PIRC) and university and college campuses across the United States. The Consortium provides members with training, prevention strategies, technical assistance and evaluation tools to assess and effectively address sexual and relationship violence and stalking in their communities. Technical assistance is provided by leading researchers and practitioners in the prevention, direct services, and compliance fields and is grounded in research, theory and evidence-based evaluation. The Consortium offers participants the opportunity to be in discussion with and part of a cohort of institutions working to end sexual and relationship violence and stalking on campuses.

Research Methods and Framework
Our approach to the Consortium begins from an understanding that effective response to and prevention of sexual and relationship violence and stalking depends on the needs of each individual campus. We have identified a core of prevention and evaluation strategies that can be customized to the needs of each campus and our comprehensive programming and tools are built on a firm foundation of research and years of expertise in the field. We are dedicated to helping institutions create a sustainable, violence free community, and we ask our members to commit to three years of consortium membership to achieve that goal.
A fine example of our experience working with other institutions can be found in our 2015 Report, “It’s Not Just the What but the How,” prepared for the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. The findings inform strategies for the prevention of and response to sexual violence on college and university campuses. Working with researchers and campus sexual and relationship violence experts from seven colleges and universities in seven states -- Brown University; Johnson C. Smith University; Molloy College; University of California, Merced; University of Michigan; University of New Hampshire; and University of Utah -- PIRC researchers examined the effectiveness of different methods to deliver campus sexual misconduct policy information to students. This seven-college team collaborated to determine the impact of delivery methods used to inform students about policies and resources regarding campus sexual assault.
