Campus Partner Task Force
Campus Partner Task Force
As part of the University’s ongoing commitment to addressing issues of sexual misconduct, the Office of the Provost’s Campus Partner Task Force on Sexual Misconduct was formed in Fall 2017. The Task Force works towards improving coordination between community leaders and service providers to prevent sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, and to ensure a coordinated response both in terms of law enforcement and support services for our campus.
The Task Force will, among other things:
- Provide key members of the campus community an opportunity to receive further training on issues that relate to Title IX and the Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act of Illinois, gain a greater understanding of the University’s comprehensive policy on Harassment, Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct, discuss prevention and identify best practices, analyze data on campus trends related to sexual misconduct and assist with disseminating information to broader campus constituencies; and,
- Work towards improving coordination between community leaders and service providers to prevent sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, and to ensure a coordinated response both in terms of law enforcement and support services for our campus.
The Task Force meets at least twice per academic year, but there are opportunities for further involvement of task force members, including Prevention Advisory Committee and Campus Climate Advisory Committee. If there are any questions about this initiative, the Task Force is chaired by Shea Wolfe, Director of the Office for Sexual Misconduct Support and Resources.
