Best Practices Lauded a Second Time by White House Task Force
On January 5th, Vice President Joe Biden called on college and university presidents, chancellors and senior administrators to step up their work in ending campus sexual assault. In releasing the Second Report of the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, Biden called on campus leaders to follow the guidelines set forth in the report. As with the first report in 2014, PIRC’s Bringing in the Bystander® In-Person Prevention Program was cited in the 2017 report as an evidence-based and evaluated prevention program that works to "increase college students’ confidence in their own ability to speak up against sexist language or other behaviors.
In 2014, The White House Task Force to Protect Students From Sexual Assault also looked to Prevention Innovations Research Center to evaluate efficacy of strategies for prevention and response to sexual violence on campus. Check out PIRC's white paper “It’s Not Just the What but the How."
