Enhancing Victim Services Campus Resources

An integral part of The Enhancing Victim Services throughout Rutgers University Project is providing support and resources to our campus partners in order to help build upon and improve services, programs, policies and initiatives. 


Resource Documents:

The purpose of this toolkit is to provide a summary of evidence-based literature related to developing a victim services office. Topics examined include crisis intervention, advocacy, counseling, prevention & education, as well as partnerships & collaboration.

This guide acts as a starting point for staff recruitment and best practice for victim service agencies, specifically on campus. 

This toolkit outlines the key areas of the Trauma Informed Approach. It also includes questions to help guide implementation. 

This guide was created in order to support direct service providers and practitioners working with survivors of violence and abuse in the context of support group programs on campus. 

This toolkit aims to provide basic information on how to practice self-care in and outside of the office. It provides practical guidance on how to implement self-care efforts and utilize resources that can be shared to support staff members’ individual needs.

This chart defines the many different terms that are used to describe levels of evidence, included are those terms that can best help move campus prevention initiatives forward. 

This document provides suggestions on how to evaluate “passive programming” or “unstructured programming”. This is programming designed to raise awareness that may not fit neatly into trainings, facilitated conversations, or presentations. Passive programming includes unstructured activities such as interactive or visual displays, messaging campaigns, tabling events with brochures and information, or longer events with different programs that participants can freely flow in and out of.

The Victim of Crime Compensation Office (VCCO) is responsible for compensating victims of crime and is supported by the NJ Office of the Attorney General. Do you know how to access these benefits, do you have questions? Then this guide is for you!
