Educating Parents and Alumni About Sexual and Interpersonal Violence

Education Law 129-B requires that colleges and universities "use multiple methods to educate students about violence prevention and shall share information on domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault prevention with parents of enrolling students" (Education Law 6447[7]). Beyond the legal requirements, institutions are working to engage parents in important conversations, especially around consent and violence prevention. This webinar will discuss some of the challenges and successes in educating parents and provide resources and sample documents to help institutions develop and customize their own training for parents. There are two sessions, just in time for summer orientation. In addition, the speakers will cover educational programming for returning alumni. Whether coming for a sporting event, a conference or meeting, or just to see their "old haunts," returning alumni may meet and socialize with current students. Educating them about consent and violence prevention is important, but requires a different approach. The speakers will discuss strategies and methods to reach this population.
