Program Overview

Campus

Campus Program

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.
