Mount Aloysius is taking steps to increase student safety on campus.
Partnering with the District Attorney’s office, Mount Aloysius was given approval by the Cambria County Commissioners to apply for a 3 year, $300,000 grant through the Department of Justice/Office of Violence against women.
That money will be used to develop a prevention education and response program on sexual assault, dating violence, and “stalking and domestic violence”. The college will partner with Victim Services, Inc., Women’s Help Center, and the District Attorney/Sexual Assualt Team to make the program possible.
It will accomplish the following:
- Convene a coordinated community response team.
- Implement a comprehensive prevention program for students.
- All partners will participate in national training put on by the Department of Justice.
