SEXUAL VIOLENCE PREVENTION & EDUCATION COALITION
The Sexual Violence Prevention & Education Coalition (SVPEC) serves as an interdisciplinary team of Tulane University senior-level administrators, faculty, staff and students who joined together in the spring of 2014 to address the problem of sexual violence and misconduct among the student population.
The mission of our coalition is to collaboratively and strategically prevent sexual violence while fostering sexual climates and cultures on campus where all feel safe, informed, and well-positioned to thrive. We also aim to enhance the effectiveness of and communication between other working groups and individuals working on initiatives related to Title IX, sexual violence prevention, rape culture and healthy sexuality.
The SVPEC is Co-Chaired by Lindsey Greeson, MS, Director of the Center for Wellness and Health Promotion, and Meredith Smith, JD and MEd, Tulane University Title IX Coordinator. If the SVPEC sounds like something in which you'd like to be involved in, contact Lindsey at firstname.lastname@example.org or Meredith at email@example.com.
OneWave BYSTANDER PROGRAM
As One Wave, we will exist in a community where violence is not tolerated and the expectation is that everyone does their part to promote a community of care and concern. This initiative aims to mobilize and equip community members to increase their active bystander behavior to prevent violence. We each have the power to choose to make our Tulane campus one that embodies the best of community engagement; One Wave empowers each Tulanian as an agent of social change to actively and outwardly support the norms of non-violence in the Tulane community.
EVERYONE IS EXPECTED TO DO THEIR PART AND VIOLENCE WILL NOT BE TOLERATED: No one has to do everything, but everyone has to do something.
Get involved! Go to the OneWave website and sign up for a training or to become a facilitator!
