The mission of the Connecticut College Consortium to End Sexual Violence is to provide a forum to address the prevalence of sexual assault and other forms of violence against women on college and university campuses. The Consortium is a space to share information, strategies, and resources in order to strengthen and support each campus community’s work to end sexual violence.
Who We Are
The Consortium is comprised of representatives from Connecticut colleges and universities, sexual assault crisis advocates, individuals from community-based services, and others who work to improve the response to and prevention of sexual violence in campus communities. The Consortium is coordinated by Connecticut Sexual Assault Crisis Services (CONNSACS) while meetings and discussions are facilitated by one of two co-chairs.
As a part of this collaboration, members not only have access to up-to-date information and trends pertaining to sexual violence on campuses, but they are also part of a statewide community of colleges and
universities engaged in addressing and preventing sexual violence. Members have noted that the support and
information gained from the Consortium helped them to make positive changes in their campus culture, update
policies, and create awareness and prevention events. The Consortium also provides a multidisciplinary exchange
among colleagues from multiple campuses and the opportunity for campus-based staff who are responsible for
sexual violence programming and response services to connect with advocates from community-based sexual
assault crisis programs.
