Grants aid UCSD sexual violence resource center

UCSD’s Sexual Assault and Violence Prevention Resource Center has received more $600,000 in grants for its programs and comprehensive services.

This is the first year the center has received three grants, each from the U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Justice and the Healthy Relationship Peer Educator Program sponsored by the Avon Foundation for Women.

The center works closely with campus and community partners to provide comprehensive services for victims and survivors of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence and stalking.

Through the $300,000 Department of Education grant, SARC launched a new campaign for preventing sexual violence. Titled, “Every Little BIT (Bystander Intervention Training) Counts…It Starts With You,” the campaign is a positive, inclusive and empowering program that encourages and teaches students bystander intervention strategies.

The Department of Justice, Office of Violence Against Women $300,000 grant focuses on providing comprehensive victim services and prevention efforts for sexual assault, dating/domestic violence and stalking.

The $10,000 grant from the Avon Foundation for Women’s Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiative, provides funding for a bystander intervention program addressing dating violence and stalking called “Cute or Creepy.”
