The Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention and Response Knowledge Community provides a space for the wide range of Student Affairs professionals whose work involves working on dating/domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault on campus. The knowledge community provides members with opportunities to provide one another support and to learn from others who are working with survivors and respondents on campus. NASPA has contributed significant resources to addressing issues of interpersonal violence on campus and within the field of Student Affairs. This knowledge community is an extension of that support and an acknowledgement of the need for specialized knowledge development and sharing of best practices on these topics.

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Title IX by the Office of Civil Rights in the Department of Education
As the national conversation continues regarding the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM)/Title IX 60-day comment period, the Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention, Education, and Response Knowledge Community hopes to continue to utilize itself as a platform for students, practitioners and campus community members to learn more about options for activism and civic engagement within the 60 day notice-and-comment period.
We’ve developed a “NPRM/Title IX: Submitting feedback for the 60-day comment period” Resource Sheet in order to better understand Title IX policy, the proposed regulation changes, how to submit feedback during the comment period and on/off campus resources that can help better empower folks to engage with the process. Feel share with colleagues, administrators, advocates, prevention staff, organizations and departments and the broader campus community.
Comments on the proposed regulations are due on or before January 28, 2019. Comments can be made here: https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=ED_FRDOC_0001-0830
