Trinity University provides a Bystander Action program to all new students to enhance sexual assault awareness and prevention. The Bystander Action program instructs participants on safe and positive options that may be carried out by an individual or individuals to prevent harm or intervene when there is a risk of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking.
A committee of staff, faculty, and student members meets every semester to review the campus climate with respect to sexual misconduct. This group focuses specifically on compliance, policy, prevention and education, and advocacy. In the future the committee will consider ways to survey the campus population.
Incoming students will participate in an online web-based course that is in compliance with the Violence Against Women Act and informative about the law.
Trinity University has paid for portions of this policy and borrowed from other information provided by NCHERM. The policy is specifically modified based on the needs and practices of Trinity University.
