What are Prevention Peer Network Web Conferences?

Prevention Peer Network Web Conferences are an interactive opportunity for knowledge sharing and network building among prevention advocates and community partners across the state. Web conferences use Power Point slides (viewed on your computer using an internet connection), text chats, and a teleconference line to offer participants multiple ways to share and learn together. Prevention staff share expertise and gain support from peers throughout the state. Come prepared to learn, share, and join the discussion.

April 16, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm:
College Campus Collaborations, presented by Joan Rich, Valley Crisis Center – A Program of the Alliance for Community Transformations
With the recent attention to college sexual assault, our nation’s culture has begun promoting the importance of domestic and sexual violence prevention on college campuses through the Campus SAVE Act, the It’s On Us campaign, and the White House’s task force against campus sexual assault.  This presentation will provide a brief overview of Valley Crisis Center’s partnership with the local university, and primarily focus on their current prevention partnership with the local community college.  This discussion will include the formation of the program, strategies used on campuses, and will highlight some of the challenges of working with a community college versus a residential university.
