Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act Training

The Campus SaVE Act (Section 304 of the reauthorized Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)) was signed into law on March 7, 2013. The Campus SaVE Act requires that institutions of higher education provide mandatory ongoing primary prevention and awareness programs/training for students and employees that address several topics related to rape, acquaintance rape, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

The Campus SaVE Act module (EDU: Eliminate Campus Sexual Violence (IN)) is a collaboration between Ball State University and an online training vendor, LawRoom. This self-paced online program ensures that Ball State is in compliance with educational requirements of Title IX and the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act

The Campus SaVE Act module covers:

  • University policies prohibiting sexual harassment and sexual violence
  • The definitions of consent, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking
  • The dangers of alcohol and other drug use and abuse
  • How to identify sex discrimination
  • How to report misconduct and assist victims
  • Prevention of sexual misconduct, including rape myths and victim blaming, and bystander intervention strategies.
