Community in Action

Beginning in 2014, the Higher Education Impact Team formed to facilitate dialogue between institutions of higher education and local service providers as well as law enforcement to address dating abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault on campus. The group meets monthly to discuss best practices in responding and preventing violence. Additionally, team members coordinate educational opportunities, promote conferences, and collaborate on events designed to reduce violence and raise awareness of these issues.

The Higher Education Impact Team consists of representatives from:

  • Domestic Violence Network
  • Butler University
  • IUPUI
  • Marian University
  • Franklin College
  • University of Indianapolis
  • Ivy Tech
  • The Julian Center
  • Legacy House
  • Families First
