Friday, Oct. 17, 2014
The University of Alaska System and the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (ANDVSA) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together to prevent sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence and stalking on all 16 UA campuses.
The agreement will strengthen sexual assault prevention training, provide additional services to victims and open new avenues for confidential reporting.
The ANDVSA is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating sexual assault and domestic violence across Alaska. It’s a coalition of 23 victims’ service agencies and advocacy organizations throughout the state.
“It is so empowering to be able to work with ANDVSA,” said Marva Watson, director of campus diversity and compliance at the University of Alaska Anchorage. “They’ve already established a comprehensive way of working across Alaska. This will help the university refine what we have and make it even better. I see this agreement as nothing but a benefit.” MORE...
