This series is designed for anyone whose role on campus engages with the issues of sexual and relationship violence, including Title IX coordinators, student conduct professionals, prevention educators, advocates, respondent support personnel and administrative decision makers as well as community agency staff working with campuses. This series is designed to provide an opportunity for exposure to cutting edge research, evidence-informed best practices and a community-wide approach to tackling these difficult issues.

Join us at Clemson University on May 2 for the first NASPA Campus Sexual and Relationship Violence Symposium Series. This event is focused particularly on bringing together the campus and community-based professions in the region whose role is centered on the prevention of and response to sexual and relationship violence on campus. The sessions at this drive-in conference include: 

  • Customizing Training for Better Campus Outcomes
  • Using Research-Informed Practices in Violence Prevention and Response
  • Addressing Respondent Rights Concerns on Campus
  • Increasing the Presence of Men in Campus Prevention and Response
  • Building Social-Justice Centered Approaches to Campus Sexual and Relationship Violence Work
  • Creating Prevention and Response Programs that Address the Unique Nature of Relationship Violence

This event brings together prevention and response experts to help campus professionals and their community partners better understand these pressing campus concerns. The symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for campuses to bring their campus team to the event in order to creatively problem solve together, and to network with other regional campuses while learning about the most promising practices on these difficult issues. Lunch is provided as part of the registration fee.
