College students and dating violence
The survey shows that 57% of college students say it is difficult to identify dating abuse – substantive evidence of the need for increased education and awareness. has created a college dating violence curriculum called Love Is Not Abuse, designed to help students deal with dating violence and abuse on campus.
“It is our hope that with these targeted college resources, we can help increase knowledge about how students can combat the issue and ultimately, help prevent the prevalence of dating abuse and violence among students,” said President of the National Domestic Violence Hotline and National Dating Abuse Helpline, Katie-Ray Jones. The first college curriculum of its kind, Love Is Not Abuse educates students about the dangers and warning signs of dating violence, offers lessons specifically on abuse via technology and provides resources where college students can find help on campus.
It can occur in any relationship, regardless of gender, race, class, age or in LGBT couples.
The objective of this regulation is to ensure compliance with Board Policy 2.1001 – Preventing and Responding to Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking, the Campus Sa VE Act and the VAWA. The Sa VE Act seeks to address the violence women face on college campuses and updates the Jeanne Clery Act (Clery Act). New students and employees will receive information about sexual misconduct during orientation and during their first full semester at the College. “Sexual Assault” means any nonconsensual sexual act proscribed by Federal, tribal, or State law, including when the victim lacks capacity to consent.
Brookdale Community College commits to full compliance with the VAWA and the obligations imposed on all postsecondary institutions under its Sa VE Act. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance. This regulation is intended to implement requirements of the Acts noted above, and regulations promulgated by the United States Department of Education, 34 C. This includes an offense that meets the definition of rape, fondling, incest or statutory rape as used in the Federal Bureau of Investigation Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
Sadly, college campuses are not always the safe havens they should be.
Domestic violence is a serious and widespread issue for college students across North Carolina and throughout the nation.
