Fellow Technical Assistance (TA) Providers

Office on Violence Against Women Technical Assistance

At Green Dot, etcetera, we are proud to serve as a Technical Assistance Provider for the U.S. Office on Violence Against Women Campus Program. The Campus Program, authorized under the 1998 Higher Education Amendments, supports colleges and universities in creating campuses safe from sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking through comprehensive prevention, judicial response, law enforcement, and community coordinated response.

As the Technical Assistance provider for the program's Comprehensive Prevention and Education focus, we provide training, consultation, and research-informed support to program participants to increase the overall effectiveness of the prevention and education component of the campus grant program. We know that power-based personal violence is a serious problem on college campuses and we are committed to measurably reducing this violence, making our nation's campuses safer for students, staff, and faculty alike.* We do this by supporting campuses as they achieve these goals:

  1. Develop a comprehensive prevention strategy that is research-informed and has maximum likelihood of creating a reduction in sexual, dating, domestic, and stalking violence.
  2. Develop a mandatory prevention and education program about sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking that incorporates information, awareness, and resources about topics including students’ code of conduct.
  3. Implement a bystander intervention program as part of an overall violence against women prevention strategy.
  4. Develop the necessary infrastructure to develop, support and sustain an ongoing prevention and education strategy.
