2019 NASPA Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Conference: A NASPA Strategies Conference

January 17 – January 19, 2019
Washington, DC

The rise of the #MeToo movement has ignited conversation on a global scale. And while we’ve made great progress in addressing sexual violence, it is clear there is much more work to be done. This is the moment for prevention and response professionals to harness societal momentum and create a lasting cultural shift in the way we understand and address sexual violence, in higher education and throughout society. Success in this work requires innovative, integrated approaches that leverage cross-functional partnerships to drive institutional change around sexual violence.

About

In 2011, the Dear Colleague Letter refocused higher education’s attention on the problem of sexual violence on campus. Seven years later, institutions have made great progress, but the #MeToo movement makes it clear there is still more work to be done. While there are many competing challenges looming in higher education, the long shadow cast when a student experiences sexual violence makes it critical that sexual violence prevention remain at the forefront of institutional priorities.   

This is the moment

This is the moment for prevention and response professionals to harness societal momentum to create a lasting cultural shift in the way we understand and address sexual violence, in higher education and throughout society. Recognizing the pace of institutional change does not keep stride with evolving student needs, critically examining how society treats provides an opportunity for advocates and practitioners to reinvigorate institutional focus on sexual and relationship violence prevention. Utilizing headlines to garner the attention of institutional leaders is a start—but are you armed with cutting-edge strategies, a current policy perspective, and scalable, integrated approaches for targeted and comprehensive improvement of your institutional prevention and response?  

Changing your institution’s culture

Sexual and relationship violence can cause immeasurable harms to a student, just one of which is impeding their ability to achieve their academic goals. As resources continue to tighten and shift, many higher education professionals find themselves in roles expanded to include prevention of and response to sexual and relationship violence. Success in this work requires innovative, integrated approaches that leverage cross-functional partnerships to drive institutional change around sexual violence.

Why Strategies Top 3:

  1. The benefit of gathering practitioners from all sectors of institutional health and wellness is the centering of integrative, systemic approaches in much of the learning—with potential partners on campus-wide solutions sitting across the table.
  2. Collect your continuing education credits at the largest wellness-focused event in higher education.
  3. Gain exposure (or even create your own customized deep-dive track) to a sector of health and wellness that you are passionate about, but may not relate to your current job function. Or, perhaps your role was recently expanded to include a new function and you need a crash course? Your registration gets you full access to all programming of the four events making up the NASPA Strategies Conferences.

Conference Themes & Suggested Topics

  • Compliance and Policy Strategies

    Programs submitted under this theme should address the ways in which institutional policies and practices can ensure compliance with relevant federal, state, and local laws, as well as strive to go above and beyond compliance. The conference committee is seeking presentations that widen the policy conversation beyond compliance and consider how intentional, inclusive policies can inform the experience of those they impact.

  • Campus and Community Partnerships

    Programs submitted under this theme should address the ways in which diverse stakeholders from within and across the campus and the larger community can work collaboratively to address sexual violence and best serve the needs of campus community members. The conference committee is seeking presentations which share models of collaboration, case studies from integrated systems, successful partnerships, and efforts to engage all stakeholders in sexual violence prevention and response. Programs submitted under this theme may also address collaboration with local, state, and national organizations to prevent and respond to campus sexual violence.

  • Systemic and Social Justice Approaches to Prevention

    Programs submitted under this theme should address the ways in which sexual violence intersects with multiple systems of oppression, including racism, sexism, heteronomativity and transphobia, classism, and more. The conference committee is seeking presentations that will: critically examine the intersections of these systems; explore innovative, social justice approaches to sexual violence prevention; and consider ways in which these systems can be dismantled.   

  • Evidence-Based Practices​

    Programs submitted under this theme should identify emerging, promising, and evidence-based approaches to sexual violence prevention and response. The conference committee is looking for presentations that demonstrate strategic use of assessment and data to inform and influence policies, programs, systems, infrastructure and other higher order change that helps build a culture in which sexual violence is eliminated.

Bridging the Gap from Research and Theory to Practice: Building evidence-informed strategies for preventing and responding to violence against LGBTQIA+ students

Wednesday, January 16th • 02.00 PM – 05.00 PM

This session will offer conference attendees an opportunity to use public health theory and research to inform their strategies for creating LGBTQIA+ inclusive services, policies, and programs. The presenter will provide an overview of relevant public health theories that inform our understanding of LGBTQ+ student health, review recent research findings related to how LGBTQIA+ students experience sexual violence, and provide space for attendees to translate that information into practical strategies for their work on campus. Attendees will leave this session with: a summary of recent research related to LGBTQIA+ students and sexual violence, a list of strategies for campus prevention and response work, and a list of key resources.

Design Thinking Crash Course

Wednesday, January 16th • 02.00 PM – 05.00 PM

Design thinking takes a human-centered approach to problem-solving in collaborative and innovative ways, producing services, programs, or experiences that better meets the needs of their users. While it has its roots in engineering, this process has broad application to student affairs as we design, implement, and assess services, programs, and experiences for our diverse student bodies. This interactive workshop will immerse participants into the design mindset and build the skills needed to apply it to challenges on their campuses.
