Read the Updates from the Coordinated Community Response Team

January 17, 2019

A coordinated community response approach ensures a timely, culturally-relevant and respectful response to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking committed on or off campus. The Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) coordinates all prevention and intervention efforts, facilitates communication between key campus departments and community partners, ensures messages across efforts are consistent and reinforced, and ensures the system’s response to victims is seamless, consistent and supportive.

What’s Happening

  • Review this language on the trauma-informed approach to our grant project work:
    Trauma-informed Approach
    - Adapted from the Department of Justice Office of Violence Against Women’s definition on trauma- informed prevention

    A trauma-informed approach strives to identify potential trauma and triggers and reduce re- traumatization for survivors, and enhance the quality of interactions between employees and students.

    OVW Campus Grant Supported Programs and Projects must provide participants with an environment and structure that is inclusive, welcoming, de-stigmatizing, and one that is not re-traumatizing given the context of gender-based violence. Thus, programs and projects should view individuals as neither potential victims nor potential perpetrators based on gender, race, sexual orientation, class, ability or other social identities.
