An examination of ten public universities’ sexual assault prevention and reporting policies found that universities’ policies tend to focus on the threat of violence, as opposed to perpetrated sexual violence itself, often leaving sexual violence victims without critical resources that a more explicit sexual misconduct policy could provide.

The Grants to Reduce Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking on Campus Program (Campus Program) is designed to encourage institutions of higher education to adopt a comprehensive, community coordinated response (CCR) to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
Campuses address these crimes by developing campus and community-based responses, which include:
- Campus victim services;
- Campus law enforcement;
- Health services;
- Mandatory education of incoming students; and
- Links to local criminal justice agencies and service providers.
Progress Reporting Update
July 2020-December 2020 Period
On Oct. 15, the JustGrants progress reporting platform opened. Please see the JustGrants website for more information about the transition. As in the past, Campus grantees will report their progress using a fillable PDF form. What’s changed is that the form may be downloaded from this website (click on “Reporting Form” below) and, in December, OVW will also be sending the form to grantees via email. The completed form will then be submitted as an attachment in your JustGrants account.
PLEASE NOTE: The deadline for the progress report for the July-December 2020 period has been changed from Jan. 30, 2021, to Feb. 28, 2021.
