POSTPONED: Technical Assistance Workshop: Working with Diverse Student Populations
The New Jersey Conference on Campus Sexual Violence held in March 2019 was organized to provide a broad overview of the New Jersey Task Force Report on Campus Sexual Assault Report. The conference provided an opportunity for participants to learn more about the recommendations provided in the New Jersey Task Force on Campus Sexual Assault report, released in 2017, and to apply those to their respective institutions.
Based on feedback gathered at the conference, the Center on Violence Against Women and Children has organized a series of three technical assistance workshops held twice in the State (Northern and Southern). The workshops will each be a half-day, morning session and will conclude with an informal “brown bag” lunch to encourage informal networking and resource sharing among workshop participants.
This workshop will focus on how to support diverse student populations to address campus sexual and dating violence. Topics will include: identifying ways to ensure students feel included and welcomed on campus, engaging cultural centers, fostering environments free of discrimination and harassment, exploring ways to engage underserved and marginalized communities in services and programming, and identifying ways to foster a sense of belonging on campus.
