Read the Coordinated Community Response Team Update, Learn How to Get Involved

November 30, 2018

The Coordinated Community Response Team has a variety of updates to share and several opportunities to get involved.

What's Happening:

  • Alternative to Violence on the Palouse’s (ATVP) Gingerbread Fundraiser is just one week from Friday on Dec. 7. This fundraiser helps ATVP continue providing vital services to survivors of violence right here in our community. Evaluations from F-Word Live! were very positive. An update will follow on how much money was raised.
  • A few new students are joining the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) Student Advisory Council.
  • Listening sessions have been scheduled with students from our grant focus populations to expand student insight into our work. These sessions will take place in January.
  • Strategic Enrollment Management is attending a three-hour Green Dot Bystander training next week so that all of their staff can be trained. This is excellent and we owe appreciation to the six facilitators who will make this happen.
  • Mobilizing Men is setting up fireside chats for established men's groups in mid-January with assistance from the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence.
  • Many of you are aware of the Student Safety and Wellness Taskforce. Emilie McLarnan has been working with Vitruvian Planning, a Boise-based consulting company, to assess safety on our campus. They are returning to campus for a follow-up visit to gather information and leave us with some recommendations that may inform campus planning moving forward. They will visit Tuesday, Dec. 4 and they will gather feedback.
