New program at
TWU to address violence against women
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
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
• 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
• Young women ages 16-24 experience the highest rates
of intimate partner violence.
