Coordinated Community Response Team

Why a Coordinated Community Response Team?

  • Research and practice confirm that the engagement of multiple entities is required to make the changes needed to effectively respond to campus sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
  • Broad scale efforts are not successful if they lack coordination or operate in silos.

What does a CCRT do?

  • Engages key stakeholders from the community and campus including students, faculty, staff and administrators.
  • Ensures a timely, culturally relevant and respectful response to sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and stalking committed on or off campus.
  • Through shared oversight, an inter-agency/office/department cooperation avoids inconsistent, unnecessarily duplicative, and/or insensitive response to victims.
  • Aims towards developing inclusive prevention programs that are effective and relevant.
