Texas Woman’s University (TWU) has invited eight universities and five partner organizations, including the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), to partner in addressing the problem of sexual assault on college and university campuses in Texas.
The “Cultivating Safe College Campuses: A College Sexual Assault Policy and Prevention Consortium” seeks to establish a consistent, effective response to campus sexual assault for participating institutions of higher education as well as the scores of institutions connected with the partner organizations.
NPC works with TWU to share communications and best practices with NPC constituents regarding sexual assault policies and prevention strategies. NPC also participates in an advisory group that helps develop strategies and resources related to the project’s goals.
The universities in the consortium are Hardin-Simmons, McMurry, North Central Texas College, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M International, Texas Christian and University of North Texas. In addition to NPC, the organizations are the Council for Public University Presidents and Chancellors, Texas Council of Chief Student Affairs Officers, American Student Government Association and Association for Student Conduct Administration.
Started in 2016, the project is funded by a three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Women’s Health.
