Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, received a $300,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Violence Against Women for programs to prevent and respond to sexual violence on campus.
The grant money will be used to hire a full-time coordinator for sexual assault response services on campus and to create an on-campus center for victims or sexual assault. Additional funds will be used to train administrators and security forces on sexual assault response. An effort will also be made to improve online resources for members of the campus community on issues relating to sexual assault.
