Description

The Obama-era OCR guidelines attempted to eradicate rape culture on college campuses through Title IX compliance. But compliance alone, in light of the Trump administration's proposed new rules, will lessen colleges' liability and potentially create traumatic circumstances for survivors of sexual violence in the adjudication process. In this highly polarized political environment, we must prioritize building trust among students, faculty members, and community practitioners who specialize in gender-based violence. Our most vulnerable students–– women, particularly women of color, and LGBTQ & gender non-conforming–– need a proper institutional response from college administrators to balance the scales of power. In this talk, we propose that colleges and universities invest in service-learning projects and educational programs that address rape culture and toxic masculinity at its core. College administrators should consider leveraging internal resources such as the expertise of gender studies professors and advocates working at local rape-crisis centers to foster a non-discriminatory campus environment.
