College Awarded $300,000 Grant to Fight Sexual Assault

Posted by Rachael Wilbur
Emory & Henry is just one of several colleges receiving a grant to address an important campus issue.

Emory & Henry College has new resources to help students who are victims of sexual assault and domestic assault thanks to a $300,000 grant from the Justice Department’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW).

The college was one of 45 higher education institutions — and only one of two in Virginia — to receive one of 61 grants totaling $25 million. The college will use the nearly $300,000 grant to improve offender accountability, promote victim services and enhance prevention activities to make the campus safer for students.

We can and should do more to address sexual assault on college campuses – starting with a focus on preventing violence before it happens and ensuring that victims get the support they need to come forward and report their assaults.Mark WarnerU.S. Senator, Virginia

The College will hire a full-time project coordinator whose work will include the implementation of mandatory prevention and education training for all incoming students, including first-year and transfer students.

“Currently, Emory & Henry provides prevention training during orientation at the beginning of each academic year, this grant will help us strengthen these efforts,” said Todd Stanley, Director of Counseling Services in the College’s Powell Resource Center.

The grant funding also will help in development of an annual training for employees.

“We are always looking for ways to directly serve our students, and this grant will help Emory & Henry improve readiness and response, as well as work to prevent such incidents from happening on campus,” said Emory & Henry President Jake Schrum.

The grant also provides for the development of lecture and interactive programs on topics including but not limited to mixed signals, common myths about causes of violence against women, benefits of reporting violence against women crimes, internet safety and programs targeted toward men. Programming will be offered during orientation and in residence halls.

As part of this work, Emory & Henry will continue its partnerships with regional leaders in the field including the Bristol Crisis Center and Abuse Alternatives.
