Changing Campus Culture Initiative
Changing Campus Culture is an initiative of the Ohio Department of Higher Education that is embraced by Washington State Community College. The purpose is to have a strong approach to preventing and responding to campus sexual violence.
To this end WSCC provides an online prevention and response education module through the Get Inclusive program. To view this video and learn more, please click here.
Additionally, WSCC utilizes educational information from the It’s On Us national campaign. This national campaign was launched in September 2014 following recommendations from the White House Task Force to Prevent Sexual Assault who noted the importance of engaging everyone in the conversation to end sexual violence. For more information go to www.itsonus.org
WSCC supports the Ohio Department of Higher Education’s initiative to better respond to and ultimately prevent sexual assault on the state’s college campuses. We support a culture of shared respect and responsibility and strive to empower our staff, faculty, campus law enforcement, and students to prevent and respond to sexual violence through evidence-based training. Upon admission and then again annually, all students and staff receive an e-mail invite to our online learning module entitled Student Upstanders. To get to this module, please use the following link.
