Hosted By: Clery Center for Security On Campus
Date/Time: Thursday, Aug 25, 2022 at 4:00 AM - 5:30 AM ChST
Description: This webinar will introduce a toolkit that addresses the prevention needs of the diverse student populations that attend study abroad programs. It focuses on studying abroad, an exciting opportunity that provides students with rich opportunities to see the world, improve language proficiency, and be immersed in new cultures. Yet, the experience is also marked by a heightened risk for interpersonal violence for many. Colleges often do not implement prevention strategies tailored specifically for study abroad programs despite this risk. To address this gap, Alteristic, Inc. created the Toolkit for Preventing Interpersonal Violence among Students Studying Abroad for the United States Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women’s Campus Program. Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to: - Understand some of the specific needs of students attending study abroad programs. - Identify prevention strategies tailored specifically for study abroad programs. - Articulate effective strategies for tailoring prevention content for study abroad students.
