Services and What We Do
“It’s Not Just the What but the How”, is a good example of how we help postsecondary institutions, federal, state and local communities, and also a good example of how we collaborate. In April 2014, PIRC was asked by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault to conduct further research related to ending campus sexual assault. 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.
Our aim is to help postsecondary institutions, federal, state and local communities develop and implement model policies, procedures and programs on issues relating to violence against women on campus. Our services include consultations, technical assistance, research (including needs assessment & program evaluation), workshop presentations, and more.
Campus Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention Consortium
The Campus Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention Consortium is a project between Prevention Innovations 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.
