Sexual Assault Prevention Initiatives

At Colgate, we are committed to eradicating sexual and gender-based violence and assault. We focus on prevention through education, training, planning, support, and fostering community dialogue.

Education and Prevention Programs

Colgate offers multiple regular programs to students and the Colgate community to learn more about the issues of sexual violence and ways in which members of our community can help prevent sexual violence. Learn more.

Sexual Violence Prevention and Survivor Support Action Plan

Colgate's working plan outlines efforts underway with contributions from many members of our community. Learn more about our action plan.

Sexual Climate Survey

In March 2015, Colgate participated in the Higher Education Data Sharing (HEDS) Consortium’s Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey
