New Program To Curb Sexual Assault & Relationship Violence
Public health officials are teaming up with the State University of New York system for a training program designed to curb sexual assault, stalking and relationship violence on campus. As part of the initiative, faculty and staff at state colleges will be taught how to recognize signs of abusive relationships or sexual violence and how to intervene to protect vulnerable students. Once they complete the program, the faculty and staff members will be certified to train students. The training announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday will be funded by a $500,000 federal grant.
