Campus Coalition on Sexual Violence (CCSV)

Campus Coalition on Sexual Violence (CCSV)

The Campus Coalition on Sexual Violence consists of staff, faculty, community partners, and students and meets quarterly to share work being done across campus and connect community members involved in everything from peer education to policy revision and student activism. Quarterly meetings consist of knowledge sharing and updates from ongoing projects, and interested community members are invited to participate in a number of working groups to address gaps in sexual violence education and response on campus.

The CCSV has members from diverse student groups, campus departments, and community agencies and is coordinated by staff from CARE. Key campus partners include the Women's Center, the Office of Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution, Residential Services, Athletics, and the University Sexual Harassment Prevention Office.

If you would like to attend CCSV quarterly meetings, join a working group, or get on our listserv, please email CARE at care@northwestern.edu.

2017-2018 Meetings are scheduled for:

  • Tuesday Oct 3rd 3:30-5pm in Searle 3.220
  • Wednesday Jan 24th 3:30-5pm in Searle 3.220
  • Thursday April 19th 3:30-5pm in Searle 3.220
Student Advisory Board (SAB)

The Student Advisory Board is composed of undergraduate student leaders and activists committed to ending sexual violence on campus. With a variety of perspectives on student life, they liaise with the Campus Coalition on Sexual Violence about student priorities and experiences around healthy sexuality and consent at Northwestern. We welcome students with any  interest in this work to join the Campus Coalition on Sexual Violence meetings and connect on these issues. 

Background on the CCSV

The Campus Coalition on Sexual Violence, formed in May 2010, is charged by the Vice President of Student Affairs with assessing and improving campus policies, prevention programs, and response services dealing with sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.

In September 2011, the CCSV received a three year federal grant from the US Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women (DOJ-OVW) to improve sexual violence prevention and response services on campus. In September 2014, a second DOJ-OVW grant was awarded to continue to enhance and expand our work in sexual violence prevention and response at Northwestern University.
