EVERFI’s Campus Prevention Network (CPN) has examined the current state of sexual assault prevention to identify positive national trends in higher education and spotlight areas that schools need to continue to focus their attention. During this webinar, Holly Rider-Milkovich, Senior Director of Prevention Education at EVERFI, will:

  • review a comprehensive framework for effective prevention
  • offer new insights on the state of sexual assault prevention across the country
  • spotlight several campus case studies of excellent prevention in action
  • share a new tool for all schools to assess and benchmark their prevention efforts, the Sexual Assault Diagnostic Inventory (SADI)

Clery Center will unveil a sample primary prevention programming plan that provides an example of what an academic year of programming could look like in tackling the required components highlighted within the VAWA Amendments to the Clery Act for new students and employees as well as current students and employees.

Join this webinar if you are looking for a helpful first step or steps to get your prevention efforts off the ground or to rejuvenate existing work. Please submit questions about primary prevention programs to Laura Egan at legan@clerycenter.org by August 31st to have answers included within the webinar on Thursday, September 28th.

PLEASE NOTE:

In preparation for this webinar, registrants are strongly encouraged to complete the Sexual Assault Diagnostic Inventory in advance. The Sexual Assault Diagnostic Inventory (SADI) is a comprehensive, 80-item assessment of an institution’s sexual assault prevention efforts developed by EVERFI prevention experts to support schools in assessing and benchmarking their prevention efforts against the nation’s leading prevention institutions as well as prevention practices supported by research and evidence from the field. Colleges and universities may access this free tool by becoming a member of the CPN. To be recognized as a participating member of the Campus Prevention Network (CPN), campuses must take a pledge to assess their efforts and strive towards best practice across areas central to effective prevention. In addition to the SADI, CPN members have access to all of the CPN resources, including webinars, blogs, research publications, and other prevention resources.

A recording of the webinar will be made available to all registrants.
