Initiatives and Committees

Annual Awareness 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. As the occur, event details will be posted on snc.titleix/edu. 

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 

This two-year program, through NASPA, began with a rigorous self-assessment, resulting in the creation of long-term goals to support and drive organizational change through out the college. Students, faculty and staff make up the core team that sets and monitors long-term goals. Additional campus members and community partners assist at various points as well.

 Goals exist to enhance response policies and procedures, training opportunities, support systems, and prevention and response work to improve the campus climate regarding sexual violence.

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 HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey, administered in Spring 2021, was jointly provided by the office of Title IX and Compliance, the Title IX Advisory committee, and the VAWA grant community team.

In February 2022, campus data presentations took place, and in April an executive summary was shared. A full summary and institutional plans are in the works, to be shared with the campus community in late summer 2022 and again during the fall semester.

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.

Symposium- Spring 2023

A symposium focused on topics of sex and gender-based harassment and violence is being planned for the spring semester. This will focus on topics of interest including healthy masculinity, social media, consent and beyond. 

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 Turns 50

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

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

Opportunities will exist to discuss 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 here. New for Fall 2022: Employees will complete training through Work Day.

VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) Grant

The VAWA grant was 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. This grant supports college efforts designed to prevent or respond to campus incidents of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.

SNC 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.
