Student demographics at colleges/universities across the United States vary from campus to campus. In an effort to outreach and provide more culturally relevant services that relate to violence against women, CALCASA’s webinar on “Working With Underserved Communities” aims to highlight the complexity surrounding intersecting identities and the urgency of building capacity amongst providers by having experts in the field address the challenges and discuss how campuses are serving diverse needs.
CALCASA’s next webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, September 29, 2009.  Please check the Project Directors listserv for registration details. If you did not receive an email, please contact Livia at
