Chatham receives grant to combat sexual and gender-based violence
Chatham University has received a $30,000 grant from the Governor’s It’s On Us PA program to help expand Gender and Sexual Violence Prevention on campus and in the surrounding area.
The grant will fund events, trainings and projects to educate the Chatham community and foster a strong campus climate in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported. Chatham’s efforts will be centered around several areas: the Chatham Men’s Project, Student Orientation Programming, Faculty & Staff Training (including Green Dot Bystander Training), and Athletic programs. Grant funds will also support a new campus climate survey.
Built off of the original It’s On US movement, It’s On Us PA brings together educators, administrators, students, families and communities to reframe the conversation around sexual violence and to be part of the solution.
