Coordinated Community Response Team
Kent State University's Coordinated Community Response Team (CCR) is a comprehensive, collaborative, and victim-centered response to sexual assault which includes prevention, education, and response/recovery components.
The responsibility of the CCR is to educate the university community about sexual assault, to provide anti-violence programming and support services, and to encourage all community members to speak out when witnessing violence.
The CCR is comprised of 3 different groups of members. The Sexual Assault Response Team, the Advisory Board and the Prevention Team.
The Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)
The SART serves as a first response team to incidents of sexual violence in the university community and ensures protocol is followed and services are victim centered.
The Sexual Violence Response Advisory Board (SVRAB)
The Sexual Violence Response Advisory Board reviews university policy around sexual violence and ensures that it is implemented across the university. Additionally this group (or a subgroup) develops and maintains the 3-5 year strategic plan for sexual violence prevention and response on campus.
The Prevention Team
The CCR's Prevention Team is responsible for implementing strategies to promote a greater awareness of sexual violence, bystander responsibility and support services for those who have been victimized through sexual violence. Members of the prevention team are working to implement the Green Dot Bystander Strategy provide resources and awareness to diverse populations and increase messaging in the greater Kent community around prevention of power-based personal violence.
