The New Hampshire Non-Residential and Community College Sexual Assault Policy and Prevention Initiative (CSAPPNH) is a project organized by Prevention Innovations Research Center and funded by the Office on Women’s Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. CSAPPNH involves the collaboration of Prevention Innovations staff, a task force of experts from across New Hampshire, and faculty, staff, and students from eight nonresidential post-secondary schools, to institute policies, practices, and prevention strategies that prevent sexual assault from occurring.
Objective: To develop, administer and evaluate comprehensive institutional sexual and relationship violence and stalking prevention and response strategies for each campus that are informed by collaborative work between national, state and local partners and that will withstand institutional personnel transitions.
In July 2016, the Office on Women’s Health awarded 9 cooperative agreements totaling $2 million per year, for three years, to organizations that support colleges and universities in preventing sexual assault on campus. Organizations partner with several regional colleges, universities, trade and technical schools to give technical assistance and support to develop and implement sexual assault policies and prevention strategies. Along with Prevention Innovations Research Center, the following organizations received grants through this program: Futures Without Violence, Georgia Independent College Association, Guam Coalition Against Sexual Assault & Family Violence, Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault, University of Kansas Center for Research, Men Can Stop Rape, North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and Texas Woman’s University.
