Chancellor’s Task Force on Sexual and Relationship Violence

Task Force Committees

Communications and Outreach Committee

The Communications and Outreach Committee will develop strategies to raise awareness of the Task Force’s activities and disseminate its findings and recommendations. Through various means, including but not limited to, print and electronic media (e.g., website), educational events, focused outreach, and social media, the Committee will seek to promote the Task Force’s role in reviewing services, policies, and programs every semester.

Policies and Procedures Committee

The Policy and Procedures Committee will assemble and review the institution’s sexual and relationship violence prevention, education, and advocacy policies and procedures and identify areas for improvement consistent with promising practices and evidence-based strategies.

Assessment Committee

The Assessment Committee will monitor progress on the institution’s assessment of sexual and relationship violence prevention, education, and advocacy efforts. The Committee will also work with the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment on the prioritization of sexual violence assessment-related data collection and survey information to help facilitate communication among relevant offices about assessment initiatives and make recommendations regarding assessment plans and projects.

Education and Prevention Committee

The Education and Prevention Committee will review and assess existing education and prevention programs to determine in which areas our programs are weak, duplicative, or have gaps, and to recommend programs or strategies that will address those issues based upon promising practices and/or evidence-based methods.
