Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response Task Force


The GRPT seeks to promote awareness of resources on and off campus for survivors of gender based violence in the CCNY community and to implement holistic and intersectional prevention programs at the CCNY campus. GRPT’s objective is to be inclusive of all members of the CCNY community and the task force participants will include diverse student, faculty and staff representation. This task force aims to create a culture where affirmative consent is normalized and all students feel safe reaching out for support from the CCNY community.



1.       Convene CCNY stakeholders to develop an action plan on addressing gender violence needs

2.       Educate and inform CCNY on definitions of gender based violence and gender identity

3.       Ensure that members of the CCNY community are aware and have access to campus gender based violence resources for counseling, safety, maintaining confidentiality and on/ off campus reporting options for all cis-gendered, gender non-conforming, and trans identified persons.

4.       Identify needs in the CCNY community relating to gender based violence issues on campus across institutional realms from departments, faculty, staff, athletics, and facilities.
