On July 27th, the Campus Program is scheduled to have a webinar on “Creating an effective protocol to intervene in violence against women” at 11.00 a.m. (PST).  Peter J. Meagher, at Reed College, will discuss how campuses can develop a sustainable and effective protocol to address sexual violence on college campuses.

Webinar Description
Violence against women in all its forms is one of the most underreported crimes on campus. This webinar will explore impediments to reporting and will present effective and sensitive strategies to assist administrators as well as staff at residence halls, campus security and campus health centers to more effectively respond to students who report experiencing sexual assault, intimate partner violence or stalking.
