Success Story GVSU receives con nua on grant from VAWA, from GVNow, October 2, 2013 Grand Valley received a three‐year con nua on grant through the federal Violence Against Women Act to further its eﬀorts preven ng da ng violence, domes c violence, sexual assault and stalking crimes on campus. The $281,250 grant from the U.S. Department of Jus ce, Oﬃce on Violence Against Women will con nue the work coordinated by the GVSU Women’s Center through 2016. The Women’s Center received an ini al VAWA grant in 2011. Grant coordinator Theresa Rowland said the con nua on means the work accomplished over the past two years will con nue and will be enhanced. Since the ini al grant was received, student reports of sexual violence have increased. From 2011, there were eight incidents, and nine in 2012. Prior to the grant in 2010, there were two reported incidents. Rowland, who chairs the Campus Violence Preven on Team, said the increase is likely due to increased eﬀorts to train Grand Valley police oﬃcers and other staﬀ, and educate students how to report an incident. Under the con nua on grant, vic m services and bystander programming will be enhanced as will programs from a CVPT subcommi ee, the Men’s Group, a student group focused on gender‐based violence preven on.
