Every October on Front Campus, colorful and thought-provoking T-shirts are clothes-pinned to roped lines, flapping in the wind—airing the dirty laundry of violence against women. This year, the vibrant menagerie commemorates 15 years of a women’s program at Georgia College.
The Women’s Center’s services are expanding with the help of a grant from the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council of Georgia. The nearly $100,000 funds a new, full-time victim services coordinator for campus.
The Georgia College Women's Center recently received word that the nearly $300,000 Department of Justice grant funding for Project BRAVE was renewed for another three years. Aimed at increasing knowledge surrounding power-based interpersonal violence and prevention through bystander intervention education, the Be BRAVE: Step Up training and other courses are offered monthly or on an as requested basis for student organizations and departments.
