Center For Changing Our Campus Culture

About The Center

The Center for Changing Our Campus Culture: An Online Resource to Address Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence and Stalking (The Center) is supported by the Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women in collaboration with its designated Campus Program Technical Assistance Provider Team. This comprehensive online clearinghouse provides important resources for colleges and universities on sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Center has gathered information from the Departments of Justice, Education, Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for campus administrators, faculty and staff, campus and community law enforcement, victim service providers, students, parents and other stakeholders as they work to change the culture on their campuses. The Center has worked collaboratively and sought guidance from experts on sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. This innovative clearinghouse includes the latest research, sample campus policies, protocols, best practices, and how to access training opportunities and technical assistance. These promising practices models, trauma informed curricula and cutting edge tools can be replicated, adapted and used (with permission when noted as necessary) by institutions of higher education to support efforts to end sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking on their campuses.

Safe Place, a specialized team within Safe Passage, Inc., is dedicated to serving survivors of sexual assault or other unwanted sexual experiences. Whether this trauma occurred recently or decades ago, we are here to help with your physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. 

Sexual abuse/assault can include force, coercion, the absence of consent, manipulation, and the inability to provide consent. It is most common that people wait to tell someone about what happened. For people who have experienced child sexual abuse, the average age to tell someone is 52. People are also much more likely to be sexual abused/assaulted by someone they know, love, or trust. Our Safe Place Team respects that it is difficult to seek support, build trust with others, and start the healing process with someone you have never met before.  

By calling the Safe Place Helpline, 812.932. SAFE (7233) you can speak with an advocate  – 24/7- who will listen, care and help you understand what support is available.  All of our conversations and support services are confidential and completely free of charge.
