This coalition is being funded by the U.S. Office of Women's Health through a Strategic Policy and Prevention Programs grant. The goal of the project is to expand and improve prevention strategies at Georgia's diverse campus environments through the implementation of policies and programs that are sustainable, evidence-based or evidence-informed. Since the start-up funding for the Coalition is grant-funded, the primary emphasis of the Coalition's work will be sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, stalking and sexual harassment.
