Stonybrook, NY-  Recipient of the Grants To Reduce Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women, SUNY Stonybrook has paved the way for victims of violence in stepping forward to report sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking on campus.  In a recent visit to Stonybrook, the  Center for Prevention and Outreach (CPO) program lead by Dr. Smita Majumdar Das, has been able to create various programs and collaborated with other departments, including the creation of a survey to ask students their experience regarding violence on campus.  The results provided Dr. Das with a framework  on methods to target outreach to students on campus.  As a result, students have been able to find services, report and feel safe in approaching university staff in reporting any violence.  The grant has also allowed many of the collaborative partners, such as Athletics, to better assist students by changing culture and demonstrating that sexual violence is not tolerated.  For more information visit SUNY Stonybrook.
