The University of Findlay recently was awarded a three-year, $275,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women.
College administrators call campus safety a top priority, and the newly funded Findlay Action Through Coordination, Education and Training (FACETS) project takes a proactive approach to reducing sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
"This grant will allow the University of Findlay to address important issues and to develop a comprehensive approach that will benefit UF students, faculty, staff and the community," said David Emsweller, VP for student affairs.
The grant will fund activities to reduce barriers to reporting incidents by streamlining procedures and improving awareness and education of the issue across campus.
While services are available in the local area, this grant will enable the university to centralize services for victims on campus and improve partnerships with local advocacy groups.
The campus group will work with a Community Response Team, which includes key members of the Hancock County Domestic Violence Task Force.
