ONE2GETHER Campus Violence Prevention Program
In August 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) awarded Lourdes University a $300,000 grant to enhance the safety of students, faculty, and staff through the prevention of and response to sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking (SADVS).
ONE2GETHER: Gray Wolves United
Lourdes University is dedicated to nurturing a diverse community that supports students in fulfilling their potential.
Our ONE2GETHER Campus Violence Prevention Program is inclusion-focused and calls the entire community to get educated. Further, as Gray Wolves United, we pledge to prevent sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
Coordinated Community Response Team
As part of the grant project, Lourdes created a Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) known as the VIP Team. Led by Coordinator Charlotte Powell, the team of internal and external partners are charged with fulfilling the goals of the Campus Violence Prevention Program.
Lourdes University and its community partners seek to eradicate gender based violence on our campus and to serve all persons impacted by such violence with a trauma informed approach.
Goals of OVW Campus Program
Help colleges and universities create effective, comprehensive responses to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. A comprehensive approach includes both prevention and intervention and requires a multi-faceted, coordinated effort that engages key stakeholders from the surrounding community and throughout the campus, including students, faculty, staff and administrators.
