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.
