National Conference


Our third national conference focused on Campus Responses to Sexual Misconduct, planned for 2020 has been postponed until September 2021 in response to the continued threat of COVID-19. While this cancellation is disappointing to us and many who regularly attend, the vitally important work that unites us will be better achieved at this time if do what we can to ensure everyone’s health and wellbeing.  

However, there is  plenty to look forward to in 2021. Our next National Conference will address campus sexual misconduct at a “meta” level, looking at interventions that are designed to change campus culture.  The event will convene the voices of leading national researchers and practitioners addressing sexual assault, sexual harassment, and bullying, as well as evaluation methods for broad-based programs. This conference provides information relevant to student life staff, college administrators, researchers, Title IX, advocates, counseling personnel, and others interested in topics related to campus sexual misconduct.


“This conference is by far the most important I attend annually. We actually engage, learn and share in ways that other conferences fail to do. The format is terrific, and the people at the Center are key. The Center has put the University of Kentucky on the map as a power house in terms of Violence Against Women, gender‐based violence, and related topics. The University of Kentucky should be extremely proud of what the Center has done!” -2018 Conference Attendee
