Beyond Title IX: Guidelines for Preventing and Responding to Gender-based Violence in Higher Education by Ann Fleck-Henderson with contributions from Peggy Costello, Maya Raghu, Jennifer Solidum Rose and Diane Rosenfeld for Futures Without Violence and the Avon Foundation (2012). Futures without Violence and the Avon Foundation brought together a National Campus Advisory board to provide guidance on the new guidelines set forth around Title IX in responding to sexual assaults on college campuses. This report, which comes from this gathering of experts, seeks to move the efforts of higher education institutions past complying with the guidelines to creating a culture of gender-based violence prevention and response.
Guidance for Creating College and University Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Stalking, and Sexual Violence Prevention and Intervention Programs and Policies for Students, by the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence (2015). “This document, the Guidance, is one of two documents prepared by the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCCADV) and serves as a general guide for colleges and universities as they develop their domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual violence policies. The Template is the second document, a supplement to the Guidance, and includes a recommended layout and language for the policy itself. Institutions are at varying stages of their policy development. These documents are comprehensive and therefore will serve institutions differently. Institutions that are at the beginning stages may be more likely to adopt the entire template, whereas institutions that have recently written or updated their policies may be more likely to view these documents as additional guidance and/or suggestions.”
Student Summit on Sexual Assault: Report and recommendations, by the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (2014). You will be able to download the document once you complete the survey. Discussion of a convening of college and university students from across California and their recommendations for prevention and response on campus.
Addressing Sexual Assault and Interpersonal Violence: Athletics’ Role in Support of Healthy and Safe Campuses. Published by the NCAA, this handbook illustrates the responsibility athletics departments have in collaborating with other campus leaders to fight sexual assault and interpersonal violence. The handbook was created to assist athletics departments in being valued campus partners in an effort to change the culture surrounding this issue.
In 2012, Westat, the research firm responsible for maintaining the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) Clery Act data collection portal and for publishing ED’s Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting, distributed a broadcast e-mail to all institutional Clery Act reporting contacts clarifying a number of Clery Act-related reporting requirements.
“The American College Health Association developed the Shifting the Paradigm: Primary Prevention of Sexual Violence toolkit to provide facts, ideas, strategies, conversation starters, and resources to everyone on campus who cares about the prevention of sexual violence. While there is a rich volume of tools, knowledge, and resources for intervention after sexual violence, the emphasis of this toolkit is to encourage prevention activities that take place before sexual violence has occurred and which create social change and shift the norms regarding sexual violence.” – From the CDC

Mentors in Violence Prevention
One in Four:
One in Four, Inc is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of rape by the thoughtful application of theory and research to rape prevention programming. Our presentation and prevention strategies are based in statistical research and have been shown to increase likelihood of bystander intervention in a situation where rape or sexual assault may occur. In addition, men who have participated in “The Men’s Program” have been shown to commit less sexual assault during an academic year than those who have not. Women who see “The Women’s Program” experience increases in bystander willingness and efficacy to intervene. One in Four strives to provide presentations, trainings, and technical assistance to men and women, with a focus on single sex programming targeted toward colleges, high schools, the military and local community organizations. In addition, One in Four serves as an umbrella organization and support system for single sex sexual assault peer education groups who call themselves “One in Four” chapters.
The Consensual Project:
The Consensual Project partners with schools and universities to bring students a fresh understanding of consent. The innovative curriculum, workshops, and website empower young people to incorporate consent into their daily lives. The Consensual Project is committed to helping students connect through consent.
Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER):
Started by Columbia University students in 2000, Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) is the only organization that fights sexual violence and rape culture by empowering student-led campaigns to reform college sexual assault policies.
Theater Projects: Examples include Rutgers University Scream Theatre, University of Colorado at Boulder’s The Interactive Theater troupe and University of Texas at Austin’s Voices Against Violence Peer Theatre Group.
No Zebras: No Excuses (at Central Michigan University)
Where do you stand?: : This guide describes “Where Do You Stand?,” a comprehensive bystander intervention campaign for college men. The guide teaches how to use the campaign to positively change the cultural dynamics of a campus culture.
Online orientation programs
Online orientation programs can serve as one part of a comprehensive prevention approach. The following programs are offered at a range of price levels and are supported by a range of amounts and quality of empirical evidence.
Selecting an Online Prevention Module
This toolkit is designed to help campuses consider and potentially select an online module to expand comprehensive and strategic gender-based violence prevention plans on campus.
Questions to consider when deciding about online orientation programs:
- What are your overall sexual violence prevention goals? How will an online orientation fit into your broader, more comprehensive prevention plan?
- How can an online orientation help meet some of those goals?
- Which goals cannot be met with an online orientation?
- How will it complement related campus policies, available sexual violence response services, social marketing campaigns, etc.?
- What are the specific goals and objectives you hope to accomplish through an online orientation? Does the content of the orientation support these goals and objectives? Do the desired changes in knowledge, attitude, beliefs, behavioral intent and/or behaviors contribute to changes in underlying norms or associated risk and protective factors that will shift actual behaviors?
- Does it contribute to a comprehensive approach? Is it one element of a comprehensive approach? What are the other prevention components that make up the comprehensive approach on campus?
- Online orientation programs are products. How have certain products been marketed to you? How do the program’s strengths and limitations match up to the marketing?
- Are there published evaluations of the program’s effectiveness?
- Are they peer-reviewed and/or independently conducted?
- If the program has demonstrated effectiveness in some outcomes, what are those outcomes? For which outcomes was the program not effective? Did it change behaviors or behavioral intentions? Or just knowledge and attitudes? How long after the program was delivered were the outcomes measured? The longer-lasting the effects, the better.
- Were there any negative, unintended consequences of the program?
- Does the program adhere to the principles of effective prevention?
- For how long does the program engage students? One-hour in-person presentations are not effective in creating lasting change, and short online programs are likely to have the same limitations.
- Does the messaging in the content align with your philosophies and with your other messaging about sexual violence? For example, does the content challenge or reinforce gender stereotypes? Is it informed by feminist theory and does it address intersecting oppressions? Does it refrain from victim blaming?
- Is it community-specific and developed in collaboration with students and other stakeholders from that school context? Does it address the diversity of students andcampuses? Is it respectful of the uniqueness of any particular college community, including sub-cultures within that community? Does it include participatory processes to design, implement and evaluate the SVP program?
- Is the content attentive to the needs of survivors? Does it draw on the experience of a variety of survivors? Is it in alignment with available survivor services and response systems? Does it coordinate with the local rape crisis center and other community-based organizations to ensure compatibility with the larger community context?
- Does it include an understanding of the individual and community trauma associated with sexual violence?
- Does it take into account the range of sexual violence experiences, not just sexual violence occurring at campus or fraternity parties or stranger rapes, but also how to prevent sexual violence among peers in different circumstances and violence perpetrated by authority figures, family members and other acquaintances?
- Does the program draw on evidence to inform decision-making about the program?
If it claims to be evidence-informed, does it clearly communicate which evidence it’s based on? Does it help to generate evidence about what works and doesn’t work in a particular college context?
- Can it be implemented? Can it be implemented well? Are there adequate resources to adapt and implement it in diverse communities? Can it be tailored to meet the specific needs of the college and its students, including sub-cultures and languages within the campus community?
