The Sexual Violence Prevention Project (SVPP) is a four-year sexual violence prevention curriculum required for all undergraduate students, that is comprehensive, developmental, and asset-based. The curriculum is centered around four outcomes intended to reduce harmful student behavior and change Dartmouth's culture by increasing positive student behavior and helping students cultivate and strengthen life-long skills to:
- Outcome 1: Use resources, if needed, & support those who have been impacted by sexual violence (e.g. sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, and harassment)
- Outcome 2: Develop positive relationships & positive sexual behavior
- Outcome 3: Use their power in positive ways to foster equity & belonging
- Outcome 4: Check-in & step-in, across the spectrum of harm, to prevent sexual violence
To provide a comprehensive and effective prevention strategy, all undergraduate students will engage with multiple SVPP components each year, which align with the four outcomes, and build upon the knowledge and skills acquired in previous years.
