The NC State University Counseling Center is proud to partner with Chrysalis Network to bring the 5th Annual Solving the Campus Sexual Assault & Dating Violence Puzzle National Conference to NC State University. As the national lens on these issues continues to bring much needed attention to the crisis of sexual and domestic violence in our communities, the recent focus on accountability of both abusers and the systems that support them, brings a new sense of hope that these acts of violence can end. This year’s conference strives to highlight the stories of the brave survivors, advocates, preventionists, investigators and journalists who work tirelessly to expose the harm-doers and bring justice to victims/survivors. We invite you to join us as we hear these stories, and learn from experts around the country on how they have successfully created programs that uplift survivors, challenge bystanders to act, and hold perpetrators and systems accountable.
This conference is intended to create a thoughtful and intentional space for campuses and community agencies to showcase their programs, and work together to solve the challenging puzzle of responding to and preventing all forms of sexual and dating violence on college campuses. While, “Puzzles” as it has come to be known, facilitates learning opportunities in the traditional/workshop way, it is also a conference built upon the beauty and importance of relationships and community. With an attendance cap of under 250, and a plentiful and hard-working dedicated team, participants regularly share feeling connected, supported, and welcome in addition to being pleased with the content.
