Join us at Grand Valley State University on Monday, July 24, for the second NASPA Campus Sexual and Relationship Violence Symposium. This event is specifically focused on bringing together the campus and community-based professionals in the region whose roles are centered on the prevention of and response to sexual and relationship violence on campus. The sessions at this drive-in conference include:

  • Developing Campus Co-Advocacy Models to Meet Student Needs
  • Screening for Intimate Partner Violence in the Campus Health Clinic

This event brings together prevention and response experts to help campus administrators and their community partners better understand these pressing campus concerns. The symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for campuses to bring their campus teams 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.
