bettinger_lopez-1Carrie Bettinger-Lopez, White House Advisor on Violence Against Women, has assembled an extensive resource guide outlining all the federal resources available to colleges and universities to help them prevent sexual assault on campus and to help victims of such violence.

Bettinger-Lopez states that “the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault and its component federal agencies have produced guidance, model policies and procedures, training and technical assistance resources, funding opportunities, and public messaging materials concerning sexual assault in educational spaces.”

The resources include prevention tools, training guidelines, sample policies for handling sexual misconduct, guides for Title IX coordinators, sample campus climate surveys, guidelines for campus police who deal with sexual assault cases, and much more.

Prior to joining the White House, Bettinger-Lopez was a professor and director of the Human Rights Clinic at the University of Miami School of Law. She is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Columbia Law School.
