Memphis Safe Campus Consortium
A Project of the United States Department of Justice to Reduce Violence Against Women
on College Campuses
As part of the Memphis Safe Campus Consortium (MSCC), the UofM Center for Research
on Women (CROW) was awarded funding in 2007 from the Department of Justice, Office
of Violence Against Women, to help create a community-wide protocol for (1) responding
to, (2) educating college students, faculty and staff about, and (3) preventing and
reducing incidents of, violence against women on college campuses in Memphis. CROW was charged with coordinating all MSCC activities, training and materials on
the UofM campus.
Members of the MSCC included the University of Memphis, Crichton College, Christian
Brothers University, and Rhodes College, along with the Memphis Sexual Assault Resource
Center, The Exchange Club Family Center, the Memphis Crisis Center, and the Shelby
County Crime Victims Center.
By approving CROW’s participation in this grant application, the University of Memphis
Administration agreed to support and assist CROW as we worked with our Consortium
partners and a University-wide Safe Campus Advisory Committee to:
1) Develop support services programs, including psychological counseling for victims
of violence on the UofM Campus.
2) Conduct trainings on the impact of violence against women, and means to reduce violence
against women, for UofM safety and security employees, campus judicial boards, students,
athletes, faculty, staff, and applicable contract vendors.
3) Develop and implement effective campus policies, protocols, orders, and services specifically
devoted to prevent, identify, and respond to violent crimes against women on the UofM
4) Improve methods of communication between local and campus law enforcement and victim
service providers to ensure a coordinated community response to violence against women
on the UofM campus
5) Conduct data analysis and project evaluation for the MSCC.
The Center for Research on Women conducted research on the safety of female students
on the University of Memphis campus.
In addition, the Center has assembled a University-wide Safe Campus Task Force. Members include:
