Sexual Respect Advisory Committee
Utah State University created a community advisory committee in fall 2018 to provide important feedback in improving USU’s prevention efforts and the way the university responds when sexual sexual misconduct – sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, sexual assault, relationship violence, and sex-based stalking – occurs. The committee includes alumni who are engaged in the issue, current student leaders, and experts in sexual violence prevention and response. The advisory committee meets regularlyto review current efforts and to provide feedback on upcoming plans.
- Create and build collaborative relationships with community partners, including building partnerships with coordinated community response teams and sexual assault response teams across the state.
- Receive feedback from statewide community partners about USU’s response to sexual misconduct, including information about university sexual misconduct processes, procedures, and resources.
- Provide opportunities for collaboration between the university and statewide community partners to better prevent and respond to sexual misconduct.
