Conference 2017

General Information

Conference Location:
Hunt Library
1070 Partners Way
Raleigh, NC 27606
Map and directions

We will be on NC State’s Centennial Campus – which is NOT the same as the main campus. We will be on the 2nd Floor of Hunt Library. If you come in through the first floor, you will walk up the yellow staircase and we will be right there in the Duke Energy Hall. There will be volunteers on both floors to direct you. There is also an elevator. You do NOT need a special ID to get to this part of the building.

Conference Overview

Campuses nationally are continuing to work hard to meet and exceed federal requirements around sexual and dating violence prevention and response.  As the national lens on these issues has brought much needed advocacy, investigation, and prevention programs to campuses, it has also created compliance-driven campuses versus those focused on being proactive and doing what’s right. This year’s conference strives to re-commit us to this work, remind us that this work is vital for the health and success of our campus communities whether there are regulations in place or not, and provide participants with tangible strategies and effective approaches to campus advocacy, prevention, and investigations. Main themes will focus on the good and bad of social media, perpetrator sanctioning, what is required to engage men – for real, and the role of advocates in the current climate.

This conference is intended to create a thoughtful and intentional space for campuses and community agencies to showcase their programs, and work together to solve the challenging puzzle of responding to and preventing all forms of sexual and dating violence on college campuses.
