IUPUC participates in campus consortium

IUPUC faculty and staff participated in three workshops during in the Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault campus consortium conference.

The school was one of 10 campuses across the state of Indiana that participated in the conference Sept. 6 and 7 at the coalition’s campus consortium conference at the Renaissance North Hotel in Carmel. The campus consortium was made possible after it received a three-year federal grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health.

The coalition was one of nine federal recipients of the federal College Sexual Assault Policy and Prevention initiative grant. The grant, totaling about $2 million annually, was given to organizations that support colleges and universities in their efforts to prevent sexual assault on their campuses.

The campus consortium includes Butler University, DePauw University, Domestic Violence Network, Franklin College, Indiana Commission for Higher Education, IUPUC, IUPUI, Marian University, Purdue Northwest, Purdue West Lafayette and Saint Mary’s College, according to the coalition’s website.

Sandra Miles, dean of students and director of student affairs/deputy Title IX coordinator at IUPUC, and Bailey Moss, coordinator of leadership and community service at IUPUC, were the presenters from IUPUC.

“As the deputy Title IX coordinator for IUPUC, I see firsthand the aftermath of sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and sexual harassment, so it is a great honor for me to be able to contribute to the prevention education initiatives across the state and beyond,” Miles said.
