Announcing our New It’s On Us Campus Innovation Partner Schools!

Today, It’s On Us is excited to announce our new 28 official partner schools. Each partner institution has made a public commitment to prioritize sexual assault prevention and creating a safer and more supportive environment for survivors. We’re honored to work with them over the next two years!

The Campus Innovation Program is unique in its goal to amplify the incredible work that is already being done by students and administrators across the nation, and to help institutions implement sustainable change. The program will build upon the ideas that school administrators and student activists are already promoting to create safe and inclusive campuses for survivors of sexual violence and their allies. This program will create a network of campus administrators and provide opportunities to facilitate scalable change on campuses of all shapes, sizes, and demographics; and to share best practices and resources within that network. Partner institutions will also have access to the Culture of Respect Collective that includes robust and comprehensive resources, guides, and tools.

All partner institutions will have an influential voice in the It’s On Us campaign, contributing to and working with our 95 partner organizations. This program will provide the opportunity to structure change around the needs of individual campuses by engaging voices from all areas of the community. Through long-term planning and vision, institutions can begin to build infrastructure and lasting programming to address the evolving culture of sexual violence on college campuses.

Over the next year, It’s On Us will continue to build infrastructure across the movement to ensure that students feel safe and supported across campuses. The campaign will also expand the organization’s work outside of the campus environment and into the national conversation around ending rape culture.
