Education and Prevention

The University provides education programs and outreach events throughout the academic year to promote awareness of sexual assault, domestic and relationship violence, and stalking.  These campaigns provide information regarding resources, teach sensitivity regarding victim/survivor experience, and promote a healthy culture and mindset that prevents these crimes from occurring.  Additionally, in compliance with Campus SaVE Nicholls provides specifically structured educational programs for all new students and employees annually.  These include definitions of these crimes as well as consent; bystander intervention, risk reduction, and an emphasis on these crimes being strictly prohibited by the institution.

The University also adheres to its procedures and protocols that hold perpetrators accountable and its vigilant crime reporting data and statistics that provide transparency. These factors contribute, along with the education efforts, to the prevention of the crimes addressed in this policy
