In a university of 10,000 students, 350 sexual assaults will occur in the course of the school year. Now there’s a comprehensive guide that helps you establish, improve, and manage a coordinated Sexual Assault Response Team that’s trained and ready when needed.
Campus Sexual Assault Response Teams: Program Development and Operational Management by Donna M. Barry, APN, FN-CSA and Paul M. Cell, Chief of Police, Montclair State University.
This important new resource is designed to help you meet your responsibilities swiftly, skillfully, and lawfully. Take the trial-and-error out of establishing an effective sexual assault response by following the guidelines and protocols developed and implemented at one of the country’s most respected SART programs. Learn step-by-step how to:
Establish an effective institutional response to campus sexual assault—with comprehensive procedures and policies for campus law enforcement, student affairs and campus judiciary officers, and health care providers and advocacy staff
Meet your legal obligations under the Clery Act and other federal and state laws
Provide a high level of training in today’s best practices for every member of your response team
Ensure that campus and local officials, health care professionals, and advocates work together proactively to help victims and hold offenders accountable
Make your community a safer place for students, faculty, and employees.
