Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT)
Niagara University’s team consists of a diverse group of leaders and stakeholders, both on campus and in the community, who actively engage the NU community in prevention, responding, and advocating against dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking while promoting positive social change.
CCRT Mission Statement
Guided by our Vincentian values, our multidisciplinary team seeks positive behavior change and a cultural shift among students, faculty, staff, and community members on the Niagara University campus towards a trauma-informed and safe campus community. The Niagara University Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) believes that increasing dialogue and engaging all individuals in prevention, education, and intervention efforts surrounding domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking (DVDVSAS) are effective pathways to elicit a positive impact and reduce incidents of violence and victimization. The CCRT mission is to coordinate strategies to:
- Educate the campus community about DVDVSAS victimization.
- Make resources available to victims and those that serve them.
- Respond to reported incidents in a trauma-informed approach.
- Engage all members of the community in prevention, education, and intervention efforts.
