2018 NASPA Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Conference: A NASPA Strategies Conference

January 18 – January 20, 2018
Portland, OR

The 2018 NASPA Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Conference focuses on giving student affairs practitioners the tools to effectively prevent and respond to both sexual and relationship violence on campus through a variety of innovative approaches. This conference is part of the NASPA Strategies Conferences, which include the 2018 NASPA Alcohol, Other Drug, and Campus Violence Prevention Conference, the 2018 NASPA Mental Health Conference, and the 2018 NASPA Well-Being and Health Promotion Leadership Conference.

About

The continued national focus on campus sexual and relationship violence and institutional efforts to prevent and respond to such violence highlight the need for a conference specific to the strategies for use by professionals at institutions of higher education. Sexual assault and relationship violence cause immeasurable harms to students, including their abilities to persist in their academic endeavors, increased feelings of loneliness and isolation, and serious mental health concerns. There are a growing number of Student Affairs professionals whose roles involve prevention of and response to sexual and relationship violence on campus, including Title IX Coordinators, Deans of Students, Student Conduct personnel, prevention educators, advocates and hearing board members who may come from across the institution. This conference is the premier opportunity for professionals in these roles to come together and explore promising practices and innovative efforts to prevent and respond to sexual and relationship violence in the higher education community.  

Learning Objectives

Attend this conference to:

  • identify best practices for developing and/or revising comprehensive campus sexual assault policies; understand the latest federal and state legislative policy updates that impact sexual violence on campus and evaluate best practices for compliance, implementation, and evaluation
  • identify strategies to implement sustainable evidence-based practices to prevent and address violence; develop strategic plans for building, funding and assessing prevention and response programs on campus
  • learn how to build stronger relationships between campuses and community service providers; increase communication and buy-in from campus and community stakeholders regarding sexual violence prevention and response
  • discover and compare strategies to implement and increase prevention programming and improve campus response to violence and victims
  • explore ways in which violence prevention intersects with both mental health and substance abuse on campus to develop and enhance prevention, intervention and response
  • examine institutional systems and structures that contribute to the prevalence of violence; and explore social justice practices that foster more welcoming and inclusive campus communities
