Reminder: The early registration deadline for the first ever Minnesota Campus Sexual Violence Prevention Summit to be held June 9-10, 2016 at Metro State University in St. Paul, MN is this Friday, April 22nd. After Friday, registration costs go up! Also, registration is limited to the first 300 people who register.
The Summit grew out of discussions among the many people and groups involved in the Campus Sexual Assault legislation passed in Minnesota last year including the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA), MnSCU, the Minnesota Private Colleges Council, the Minnesota Career Colleges Association, The Aurora Center, Metro State, St. Cloud State, and many more.
The purpose of the Minnesota Campus Sexual Violence Prevention Summit is to share best practices and experiences to create a shared community and commitment to effective prevention of sexual violence, dating violence, sexual harassment, and stalking. Designed for teams of campus administrators and prevention staff, the Summit will provide practical resources needed to implement effective, comprehensive prevention programs, opportunities for campus staff to learn from each other and identify resources and successful programs on other campuses, and foster relationships among professionals whose work addresses sexual violence on campuses. The Summit will address many of the topics required by the new legislation.
Campuses are encouraged to bring a team of people responsible for preventing, responding, investigating, and adjudicating reports of sexual assault on campus, including Title IX Coordinators, Prevention Staff, Student Life, Conduct Officers, Campus Security, Student Health Services, community sexual assault advocates, local law enforcement, LGBTQ Resource Center Staff, etc. This year, the focus is on staff and administrators. Depending on the response, we may add a component for students to future Summits. There will be discounted registration for groups of three from the same college or university team so start reaching out to people you work with and put together your team.
Save Money, Register Early: Early bird registration rates of $95.00 per person or $260 for a group of three registering together will be available until April 22nd. After April 22nd, the rates will be $130 for individuals or $365 for groups of three registering together. Due to our interest in making this Summit available to as many colleges as possible, we are limiting the number of registrants per campus to six individuals until after April 22nd.
