This document is intended for a team of campus stakeholders working to develop an integrated and consistent approach to the issue of gender-based violence for their institution. It promotes a focused and coherent system of supports to create a climate that encourages respectful non-violent relationships and addresses all forms of gender-based violence, including intimate partner violence, sexual misconduct and stalking. The goals are: - to prevent abusive behaviors, insofar as is possible, by engaging faculty, staff and students in promoting healthy relationships; - to ensure that the institution is prepared to respond promptly and effectively to incidents and reports of violence when they do occur; and - ultimately to change campus norms so that community members hold themselves and each other to respectful and non-violent standards of interpersonal behavior.
