Our mission is to prevent sexual violence systemically by revolutionizing policy, research, and institutions.
We invented the first and only assessment for campus sexual violence. The SVPA Campus Score uses artificial intelligence to analyze universities’ policies, programs, and practices for sexual violence prevention and survivor support. The Scores are published publicly which empowers prospective students to select the school that will best protect them. The Score also empowers administrators to improve their practices. In the future, we will be launching the SVPA Workplace Score for companies, nonprofits, and other employers.
We compile data from the SVPA Campus Scores, existing research, universities, and government agencies. This data is analyzed using machine learning, big data analytics, and statistical analysis to generate groundbreaking research insights. These insights inform best practices for sexual violence prevention and survivor support. We ensure these insights are actualized using our consulting services, trainings, public campaigns, and our Campus Membership.
Our research is also used to inform our policy efforts. Currently, we’re advocating for a state-level policy to implement sexual violence prevention education in K-12 schools. We’re also advocating for the reauthorization of VAWA and new regulations for Title IX to mandate sexual violence prevention within higher education.
