New program at TWU to address violence against women

5/22/07


May 22, 2007 - DENTON — A new program at Texas Woman’s University has been developed by Dr. Linda Rubin, associate professor of psychology, and Mr. Mark Sandel, assistant professor of social work, recent recipients of a $200,000 grant funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Violence Against Women.

Project REV (Resources for Ending Violence), is designed to provide education and prevention services to all TWU students, and direct counseling services to students who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.

Project REV will provide the following services to the TWU campus community:

• Crisis intervention, counseling, and advocacy services for victims of violence;
• Classroom presentations and discussions;
• Trainings for faculty, staff and campus organizations.

The rationale for the development of Project REV is based on the following statistics:
• 25 percent of college-age women will be sexually assaulted over a five-year college career;
• 20 percent of Texans report being victims of stalking, the majority of whom are women ages 35 and younger;
• 25 percent of all intimate partner relationships involve physical violence;
• Young women ages 16-24 experience the highest rates of intimate partner violence.

For more information about Project REV, contact program coordinator Dixie Allen at (940) 898-2744 or email dallen5@twu.edu.
