ASU Sexual Violence Prevention Education Program

Project: Research project

Project Details


ASU as a community and as an institution are primed for expansion and enhancement of the current effective programs and services for sexual violence prevention and education. The ASU Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention Program (ASU-SRVP) is uniquely positioned to address the sexual violence prevention needs outlined in this grant proposal. ASU-SRVP was previous a part of ASU Wellness. Together these programs have provided over 25 years of leadership at ASU in sexual violence prevention and education and other student health education and promotion needs. ASU SRVP and ASU Wellness share expertise in delivering relevant presentations, engaging students as peer educators, coordinating awareness events, producing social marketing campaigns, web-based education and messaging, delivering gatekeeper training, collaborating with students, campus and community partners, conducting and analyzing student surveys and evaluation studies, supporting program needs, and garnering student and institutional support. Collaborative relationships with key stakeholders on all ASU campuses including students provides a platform for education, involvement, and success across ASU. ASU SRVP and ASU Wellness have successfully implemented grant funded projects addressing sexual wellness, high-risk and underage drinking, tobacco use prevention, nutrition, suicide prevention and sexual violence prevention, including fifteen years of funding through the Arizona Department of Health Services Sexual Violence Prevention and Education. The Co-Principle Investigators of this project, Kimberly Frick and Dr. Karen Moses have been leading sexual violence prevention efforts at ASU: Ms. Frick for 10 years, and Dr. Moses for 25 years, with Dr. Moses as lead PI on the grants described in the previous paragraph. Both are engaged in national conversations concerning primary prevention in sexual violence prevention. Dr. Moses recently wrote a book chapter covering this topic in Further Wellness Issues for Higher Education (2016)1 and co-authored a research article evaluating the effectiveness of ASUs multisession sexual violence prevention education strategy that was published in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence (2019) 2 .
