What is Gender-Based Violence?
Violence is gender-based when it is intentionally directed at a person because of his or her gender or when it disproportionally affects people of a certain gender. Common forms of gender-based violence include domestic and dating violence, sexual violence, stalking, and violence based on gender stereotypes.
The issue of gender-based violence is a challenge for colleges and universities across the country, and institutions of higher education are facing increasing pressure to address these issues in a compassionate, competent, and compliant manner. Come learn how CSL addresses these issues at UChicago through a multi-disciplinary approach.
Vickie, Belinda, and Jeremy will use specific examples to highlight prevention, intervention, and resolution strategies for gender-based violence. This session will provide an opportunity for CSL staff to get information, ask questions, and understand the resources in place that address gender-based violence.
This session will cover:
- Responding to reports of gender-based misconduct
- Supporting those that have experienced gender-based misconduct
- Educational efforts
- Formal and informal resolution options at UChicago
