HBCU Week: Federal Agency Meet and Greet

All registered conference attendees are invited to participate in the first annual Federal Agency Meet and Greet. The White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (Initiative) will host this networking event to provide attendees with the opportunity to meet members of the Federal Interagency Working Group (IWG). The IWG consists of over 30 federal agencies that have formal partnerships with the Initiative.


This event will allow attendees to build a professional support network for their institution by connecting with federal agencies and their staff who can provide guidance, intra-agency connections, updates on agency activities and technical assistance support. This event will also provide attendees with the opportunity for increased visibility with agencies they are excited to learn more about and aspire to work with.

We encourage you to use this occasion as an opportunity to get to know the federal community and what is has to offer!

Register Now! Federal Efforts to Address Sexual Violence at Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Since the charge in 2014 from the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, federal agencies have continued efforts to address this important issue. In December 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a new technical assistance document entitled, Sexual Violence on Campus: Strategies for Prevention, and described in a subsequent web conference the key prevention framework components of the document and campus-based implementation and action. In an effort to continue to promote campus-based sexual violence prevention, this web conference will focus on federal-level efforts for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). There is little evidence about the extent of sexual violence on HBCU campuses, making attention to the development and implementation of evidence-based prevention and intervention crucial. Join presenters from CDC, the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (DOJ-OVW), and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) as they provide information relevant to address sexual violence on HBCU campuses. These efforts will have technical assistance implications for campus administrators, prevention practitioners, program evaluators, and researchers engaged in the implementation of sexual violence prevention programs on HBCU campuses.

For more information: CLICK HERE

OBJECTIVES:

  1. Present the state of evidence including what was learned from the NIJ-funded study on sexual violence and HBCUs
  2. Describe the federal-level partnership between CDC, DOJ-OVW, and NIJ to conduct an HBCU sexual violence climate survey
  3. Outline other existing sexual violence prevention and service efforts by CDC and DOJ-OVW
