Initiatives and Committees

Annual Awareness Events

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Be on the look out for events.

SNC plans multiple events and initiatives during awareness months, including Domestic Violence Awareness, Dating Violence Awareness and Sexual Assault Awareness months.

Students, faculty, and staff help plan and lead events. Reach out if interested in getting involved. 

Brown County Coordinated Community Response Team (BC CCR)

Staff from SNC serve on the BC CCR, sharing in the mission to create a partnership of community agencies that will confront and work cooperatively to end sexual and domestic violence in our community. They strive to ensure that the rights, dignity, and safety of victims and offender accountability are top priorities.

Culture of Respect Collective - NASPA Initiative 

In December 2022, the college completed the final phase of a two-year program with NASPA's Culture of Respect Collective. The project work included a rigorous self-assessment and the creation of goals which targeted organizational change related to sexual violence. The changes and work that resulted from involvement in this project continue to be carried forward. 

The VAWA Grant work is closely related and often supports goals set in this initiative. 

Student Peer Advocates SNC, in partnership with the Sexual Assault Center, is recruiting student peer advocates to volunteer with survivors of gender-based violence.
Sexual Assault Climate Survey

The confidential 2023 HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey was administered this spring to all faculty, staff, and students. Results are being reviewed by HEDS and are expected to be available soon.

The 2021 climate survey results are now available. 


(SPACE) Toolkit

SNC is one of several college's selected to be part of a new national partnership to facilitate the Sexual Citizen authors’ SPACE Toolkit project. Our work, which kicked off early last fall, aims to help SNC focus on our environment, including physical spaces, policies, and power inequities, to help us work toward the creation of a healthier, safer culture.

Survivor Support Groups

Support Groups and open office hours, facilitated by advocates from the Golden House and Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin, take place weekly on campus during the academic year.

Title IX Advisory Committee

SNC students, staff, faculty, Title IX staff members, and a member from the Sexual Assault Center of Brown County make up this committee. Goals include:

  • Facilitating community-wide communication regarding Title IX topics and soliciting and representing community feedback;
  • Gathering best practices, creating advocacy opportunities, and helping inform the College’s ongoing review of Title IX policy and response;
  • Evaluating climate study data and put forward recommendations based on data analysis.
Title IX Turned 50

2022 marked 50 years since the passage of Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972.

SNC celebrated through events and initiatives that created awareness and understanding of where and how Title IX started and what Title IX accomplishes today. Learning opportunities included both national history surrounding Title IX and Title IX-related developments on SNC’s campus.

Opportunities discussed the identification of continued equity needs for campus, specifically including topics of sex, gender, and sexuality.

Training Opportunities

Students, faculty and Staff can access the required online Title IX and Sexual Harassment courses through Work Day.

VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) Grant

The VAWA grant was first awarded to the college in October 2019 through the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Violence Against Women. In October 2022, we were approved for a grant extension.

This grant supports college efforts designed to prevent or respond to campus incidents of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. In part, S
NC collaborates with community leaders such as the De Pere Police, the Sexual Assault Center, Golden House, and campus students, faculty and staff, to build awareness of violence prevention and make our campus a safe place for all.
