Prevention Programming for Student Leaders
In fall 2013, members of TITAN, with the help of other Alliance members, created and facilitated prevention programming for undergraduate Orientation Leaders (OLs) and Resident Assistants (RAs). This programming focused on educating OLs and RAs about sexual violence and bystander intervention, and sought to equip them with information that they could then pass on to the undergraduates with whom they work.
The Violence Intervention Booklets (VIBe) provide information about various forms of interpersonal violence and useful on-campus and community resources for individuals who may experience, or know someone who has experienced interpersonal violence. These booklets were created in 2013, and continue to be distributed across campus.
