Culture of Respect
In January 2021, Kent State embarked on a 2-year self assessment at part of the NASPA Culture of Respect Collective.
"The Collective is an ambitious two-year program which brings together institutions of higher education who are dedicated to ending campus sexual violence and guides them through a rigorous process of self-assessment and targeted organizational change.
Each diverse cohort relies on an expert-developed public health framework, cross campus collaboration, and peer-led learning to make meaningful programmatic and policy changes. Participating institutions receive strategic support and technical assistance throughout the process, as well as detailed documentation of campus-initiated changes that support survivors, prevent sexual violence, and communicate that violence is unacceptable.” (NASPA Website, 2020)
