UC Awarded Ohio Department of Higher Education Changing Campus Culture Grant

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.
