DEAR HIGHER EDUCATION LEADERSHIP, ADMINISTRATORS AND ADVISORS

The actions you take to empower bystanders, to create safe and cohesive campuses characterized by civility and accountability have never held more influence, as these national statistics indicate:

• At least 1 in 4 college women will be the victim of a sexual assault by an acquaintance during her academic career.

• 48.8% of college women who were attacked and met the study’s definition of rape did not consider what happened to them as rape.

• On average, at least 50% of college student sexual assaults are associated with alcohol; 74% of perpetrators and 55% of rape victims had been drinking prior to the assault.

• In a survey of high school students, 56% of girls and 76% of boys [some of whom may be incoming college freshmen] believed forced sex was acceptable under some circumstances.

With the advent of Title IX mandated reporting and training and the Violence Against Women Act, it is critical to have comprehensive protocols in place for your college. Providing these necessary resources and training can be daunting, especially as the VAWA now requires that your prevention efforts be included in your 2015 Annual Security Report.
Currently, over 55 U.S. colleges have federal investigations and suits related to sexual violence. My team and I are dedicated to helping you minimize your institutional risk and best serve the needs of your campus.

Together, it is our responsibility to create safe and cohesive campuses. When we unite our efforts against the epidemic of campus sexual assaults, everyone wins. Thank you for considering the opportunity to combine our mutual interests, resources and expertise to better serve you and your campus community.

With Highest Regards,

CUSTOMIZED INTERACTIVE CAMPAIGNS AND INITIATIVES


YOUR CAMPUS ENGAGED
(one day, one month, semester, or year-long)

These presentations feature customized interactive campaigns and initiatives. The themes can include: consent, sexual violence, stalking, and relationship violence.


How it Works:

Campus facilitators select from a menu of Traciana’s interactive educational and prevention initiatives. Initiatives can include displays and activities in the cafeteria, multimedia presentations of students’ stories, experiential educational activities, and open mic role play sessions.

Campus facilitators identify key student and faculty stakeholders as participants in hosting and promoting these initiatives, including: Greek life, student government, athletes, student leaders, and students who have been struggling to be heard.

In conjunction with Traciana and her team, facilitators and stakeholders develop high-energy initiatives and events that leverage various short, creative and engaging activities to build interest and momentum in the movement.

What Makes this Campaign so Unique and Effective?

  • Traciana’s awareness and educational initiatives bridge the gap between organizations and individuals on campus.
  • The tools and resources given to students, staff and faculty are sustainable and scalable; it’s the training that keeps on training when individuals across campus are activated.
