Several offices in the University of Cincinnati Division of Student Affairs, including the Student Wellness Center, Resident Education and Development and the Women Helping Women On-Campus Advocates, were recently awarded a $10,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Higher Education’s Changing Campus Culture initiative. 

The Strengthening Partnerships to Change the Campus Culture Grant will fund the Creating a Safer UC Campaign, a multi-pronged campaign designed to promote positive social norms around gender-based violence prevention and survivor support. The campaign includes a social norming campaign, a resource outreach campaign for survivors and bystanders and an in-person education curriculum. This campaign will reach an estimated 6,500 students who live on campus in the 2018-19 academic year.

“This grant will allow all students living on campus the opportunity to engage with gender-based violence prevention and make a difference in their residential communities,” states Erin Mulligan, Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator in the Student Wellness Center.
