The CORE Blueprint is a reference guide of evidence-based and expert-recommended practices in campus sexual violence prevention and response. Compiled by experts from our multidisciplinary Advisory Board, the CORE Blueprint is organized around six key areas – the six pillars – that are essential to an effective institutional strategy for ending sexual violence. All Culture of Respect programs and tools are grounded in this six-pillar framework.
The CORE Evaluation is a comprehensive self-assessment survey that allows institutions of higher education to inventory their efforts to prevent and respond to sexual violence. The questions are organized around the six pillars of the CORE Blueprint, prompting institutional leaders to look at policies, programs, and procedures in each area.
Culture of Respect recommends institutions administer the CORE Evaluation with a multidisciplinary group of students, faculty, and staff to encourage collaboration, coordination, and communication across departments.
This process identifies strengths and opportunities in an institution’s strategy for addressing violence. Ready to get started? Read this how-to guide and contact us if your institution is ready to take the CORE Evaluation online and receive a detailed report from Culture of Respect staff.
