Culture of Respect builds the capacity of educational institutions to end sexual violence through ongoing, expansive organizational change.
Culture of Respect™ was founded in 2013 by the parents of college-aged students who were alarmed by the high rate of sexual assault on campuses and the lack of comprehensive resources for survivors, students, administrators, and parents. They convened a team of public health and violence prevention researchers and experts in advocacy, student affairs, higher education policy, and law to develop the first editions of the CORE Blueprint, CORE Evaluation, and CultureofRespect.org.
In 2016, Culture of Respect became part of NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. Culture of Respect is housed within NASPA’s Health, Safety, and Well-being Initiatives, which supports student affairs administrators working towards creating well campus environments.
