The curriculum was developed by CBK Enterprises based on research conducted with staff and students at a HBCU, who identified a need for a program that addressed the needs and concerns of students of color. The program author used key informant interviews and focus groups to inform the curriculum, as well as research on sexual violence at HBCUs.
Post-workshop surveys indicate some level of program effectiveness.
This is the only program listed on our site that specifically addresses the concerns of students of color. It is important because we know students are most likely to benefit from a prevention program that addresses their needs and concerns. For non-HBCU campuses, bringing Ms. Boyd-Keyes to your campus can be a great way to supplement required programming. This may be an appropriate workshop to offer to ethnic fraternities or sororities or other identity groups on campus.
