Avon Foundation for women awards grant to Dean College to participate in first-of-its-kind National Leadership Institute to address sexual assault on college campuses.
[Franklin, MA], October 24, 2016 —The Avon
Foundation for Women awarded Dean College with a one-year grant to participate
in the first National Leadership Institute:
Changing the Narrative on Campus Gender-Based Violence. Through the $10,000
grant from the Avon Foundation, Dean College will be among the 20 schools to participate
in this comprehensive, action-oriented leadership program to develop and
implement action plans to prevent and respond to sexual assault. Together, they will form a growing learning
community committed to ending gender-based violence on school campuses.
Foundation has funded campus-based campaigns and bystander intervention
initiatives for more than five years to help change behaviors around sexual
assault. We want to inspire and empower others to be a part of the solution,”
said Christine Jaworsky, Avon Foundation Program Director. “We see the National
Leadership Institute as an innovative opportunity for students and schools to
take the lead in shifting the conversation around gender-based violence in the
campus setting, but also in the broader dialogue around sexual and domestic
violence in our society.”
The first Institute will be held in Boston from
October 25 to 26 with 10 area colleges and universities, followed by a second
cohort in Atlanta with 10 area schools from November 30 to December 1. Each school will send a multi-disciplinary team of five to six
representatives, including administrators, security and service providers,
Title IX personnel, and student leaders. During the program, participants
will learn and share best practices on how to respond, using a trauma-informed
lens, when an assault occurs. At the end of the two-day institute, each school
will have a sexual assault prevention and response action plan, which they will
be supported to implement over the course of a year.
“We’re very proud
to partner with the Avon Foundation for Women on this National Leadership Institute
to train multi-disciplinary school teams to take the lead and work
collaboratively to end gender-based violence on their campuses,” said Lonna
Davis, program leader for Futures Without Violence. “There were over 70 schools
who applied to be part of the program, so we know there is an immediate need and
desire to find and implement solutions.”
Futures Without Violence received a grant from
the Avon Foundation for Women to research, design and implement a curriculum in collaboration with Harvard Law School’s Gender Violence Program and
the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education.
are proud that the Avon Foundation for Women has chosen to support our program.
Attending the National Leadership Institute in Boston is a wonderful
opportunity for members of the Dean College Sexual Assault Prevention Work
Team, said MaryAnn Silvestri, director of counseling services at Dean College.
“The team, including student members, will create an action plan, develop new
initiatives and programs to address sexual violence on campus. We are
privileged to have been awarded this grant from the Avon Foundation for Women
and we look forward to furthering education and prevention efforts in the Dean
Leadership Institute curriculum focuses on four major areas: 1) fundamentals of
gender-based violence and trauma, 2) campus cultures and climate, 3) prevention
and education, and 4) response, policy, and adjudication. Developed in
consultation with national experts and institutional representatives from
schools across the country, the curriculum provides colleges and universities
the opportunity to learn best practices in the prevention, response and
resolution of sexual violence, and the tools needed to implement action plans.
