Sexual Assault Awareness Program (SAAP) at Kaua'i CC
The University of Hawaii at Manoa's Women's Center received a 5-year U.S. Dept. of Justice Grant which included all ten campues of the UH System in 2007-08. The Sexual Violence Prevention Project (SVPP) piloted the development of a model for a permanent campus infrastructure to address sexual violence prevention and victim services on two UH campuses each academic year, until the model has been implemented on all ten UH community college and four-year university campuses.
The Preventing Violence Against Women (PVAW) Task Force was established at Kaua'i CCC in fall 2010 and is organized under the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Membership is open to faculty, staff, students, campus security, and community based individuals with an interest in reducing sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. The Task Force currently meets once a month.
Kaua'i CC is committed to creating a community free from violence. Sexual assault, sexual harrassment, domestic and dating violence, and stalking will not be tolerated. The college recognizes the necessity of a community which is open and intellectually stimulating, where diversity of ideas is valued and every person's safety, dignity, and autonomy is respected whether they are students, faculty, or staff and regardless of race, ethnicity, age, religion, class, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
