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.
