Educational Programs

The Sexual Violence Prevention Task Force (SVPTF) coordinates educational programs and advocacy opportunities for students, faculty and staff. To better understand students' experiences of sexual violence on campus, Illinois Wesleyan University took part in the  HEDS Consortium Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey  in Spring 2018. An overview of the information collected was presented to the Sexual Violence Prevention Task Force in Fall 2019, and community presentations will continue into Fall 2020.
