Rutgers School of Social Work Receives National Media Attention for Survey Results
September 2, 2015

Congratulations to Dr. Sarah McMahon and the team at the Center on Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC) for a fantastic roll out in the national media to announce the recommendations made by Rutgers to the White House Task Force in regard to our recent campus sexual assault climate survey.  Sarah did an outstanding job in two live press conferences with national press.  The coverage is very exciting and the recognition for VAWC is well deserved.
