Create a Campus and Community Resource Team

Institutions should establish a multidisciplinary resource team that will provide a comprehensive, campus-wide plan to both prevent and respond to IPV, stalking, and sexual violence. Members of the team should meet monthly and receive regular specialized training. (Key college/university staff such as advocates and law enforcement should also serve on their community’s domestic and sexual violence response teams. These are often organized by their community-based domestic violence and rape crisis services providers.)

Key response team members:

  • Administrators
  • Advocates
  • Athletics
  • Community law enforcement
  • Community sexual and domestic violence service providers
  • Counselors
  • District Attorneys
  • Disability Services
  • Faculty and other instructional employees
  • Faith-based leaders
  • Health Services
  • Housing
  • Law Enforcement/Campus Security
  • LGBTQI+ Center
  • Library
  • Local NC domestic violence center/shelter where applicable
  • Local hospital(s)
  • Local law enforcement
  • Multicultural Center
  • North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCCADV)
  • North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCCASA)
  • Office of Student Conduct
  • Prevention Specialists
  • Residential Life
  • Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE)
  • Student Affairs
  • Student Government
  • Student representatives
  • Threat Assessment team members
  • Title IX Coordinator
  • Women’s Center

Every member of the Campus Resource Team shall be educated regarding:

  • Awareness and prevention of IPV, sexual assault, and stalking
  • The IPV, sexual assault, and stalking policies of the college/university
  • The provisions of Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act
  • Victim/survivor-centered response and the role of community-based intimate partner violence and sexual assault victim advocates
  • Communicating sensitively and compassionately with victims/survivors, including, but not limited to, an awareness of responding to victims/survivors with diverse cultural backgrounds, and providing services to assisting in locating services for such victims/survivors
  • Campus trends and relevant community assessments
  • Reporting requirements
  • Current data and research
  • States laws on sexual and intimate partner violence and stalking:
