Beyond Orientation: New Approaches to Sexual Violence Prevention Programming

Topics: Student Affairs, Student Health and Wellness, Sexual Health and Conduct

Executive Summary

Recent legislation, White House guidance, media attention, and U.S. Department of Education investigations are increasingly calling attention to prevention education programs at higher education institutions. Specifically, institutions are flocking to online education modules, orientation programming, and peer-led workshops, among other programs. While there are ample one-time events for students to participate in after their initial experiences at orientation, little thought is given to how to reach students with consistent messaging and programming throughout their time on campus.

This is not because practitioners and prevention education experts fail to recognize the importance of long-term programming structured around concrete learning outcomes. In fact, many experts and practitioners outline a strong vision of prevention work that creates a consistent presence across a student’s time on campus.
