CASA_logo_2colorWestern Oregon University’s Campus Against Sexual Assault program focuses on sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking.

This project is funded through a 3-year grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women. In October 2016, the project was funded for three more years through 2019.
The project goals include:
  • The continuation of the WOU CASA program will include expanded prevention and education programming for WOU students including all incoming students, and an expansion of the existing survivor advocacy services through Abby’s House and the Student Health and Counseling Center.
  • The program will continue to establish protocols to strengthen the coordinated community response to address and prevent sexual and interpersonal violence on campus.
  • The continuation program will support the training of campus public safety officers, campus disciplinary boards, residential education staff, and peer advocates to better support survivors of violence.
  • Finally, the program will continue to strengthen community partnerships with local law enforcement and community agencies that serve our students.
