The Collective is a campus mobilization program that guides institutional stakeholders through a step-by-step strategic assessment and planning process to improve campus sexual violence prevention and response. The program is based off the success of our pilot program, grounded in a comprehensive self-assessment, and includes collaboration with peers across the nation, technical assistance from Culture of Respect staff, and ongoing professional development. The 2017 cohort includes more than 50 institutions of higher education.
