On Thursday, September 17th, the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault announced the release of two new resources for campus community members and health practitioners to help prevent and respond to sexual violence on campus. The release of these two resources, a Resource Guide and Safe Place: Trauma-Sensitive Practice for Health Centers Serving Students toolkit, coincide with this month's 21st anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

The Task Force's resource guide is a compilation of materials designed to support students, campus administrators, staff and faculty, and local stakeholders and partners. The guide was designed to act as an umbrella for all existing resources that have been created over the past few years. The guide includes:
  • Campus climate surveys
  • Prevention tools
  • Training and technical assistance
  • Sexual misconduct policies and procedures
  • Community partnerships and MOUs
  • Public awareness and engagement activities
  • Data and information-sharing
  • Selected funding opportunities
  • Related law and policy sources
The resource guide can be found on or download the PDF.

The Safe Place toolkit was developed  by the Department of Education's National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments Technical Assistance Center for campus health center managers. It is designed to expand campus health centers and their understanding and implementation of trauma-informed response and practice to sexual violence. According to the National Center on Safe Supportive  Learning, the new toolkit will "support health center staff at all levels to:
  • Understand the likelihood that they serve student patients and even work with colleagues affected by trauma.
  • Infuse trauma-sensitive approaches into their daily routine.
  • Create a care environment that supports students affected by trauma."
Visit the Safe Space website to download the toolkit's various guides, checklists, and e-learning units.

Please do not hesitate to contact us  with any questions about these new resources or if your institution needs assistance with program assessment, implementation or training.
