University of Kansas Establishes a New Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center

The University of Kansas has established the Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center on campus. A search is underway for the director of the new center. Two educators will be added at a later date. The educators will provide violence awareness and risk reduction programming related to sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking and bystander intervention. The first educator position will focus on men’s issues and bystander empowerment. The second educator will focus on sexual violence and healthy relationships.

JanetuttleJane Tuttle, assistant vice provost for student affairs at the University of Kansas, said that “while the university already provides strong sexual assault prevention and education programming, we recognize our programs could be improved if they were better coordinated and centralized under one roof. The new Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center will serve as that central unit. The result will be a better, more coherent sexual assault prevention and education effort that benefits the KU community.”

Dr. Tuttle has been on the staff at the University of Kansas since 1979. She is a graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, where she majored in political science and education. Dr. Tuttle holds a master’s degree from the University at Buffalo of the State University of New York System and an educational doctorate from the University of Kansas.
