Reorganization for Interpersonal Violence Prevention focuses on prevention

In response to new mandates and guidance relative to Title IX, the Violence Against Women’s Act (VAWA), the Office of Civil Rights and the White House Task Force, Binghamton University is increasing student and staff training, education and outreach in an effort to prevent sexual misconduct and support students who report cases of sexual misconduct. 

The Interpersonal Violence Prevention program, historically responsible for prevention, education outreach and student advocacy, will focus solely on education and outreach in the years ahead and will move to the Dean of Students Office in order to foster collaborations. Student advocacy for students reporting incidents of sexual assault, dating violence, stalking and harassment will move to the Dean of Students Office and be managed by two case managers located there.

The University is currently recruiting for a director of health promotion and prevention services to lead educational efforts moving forward. Once hired, this individual will be responsible for coordinating and integrating all health promotion and outreach programs and initiatives, advocacy services and compliance with the new mandates.
