Campus Training Institute (CTI)
The New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault is committed to preventing and providing effective interventions related to sexual violence on college campuses. We were among the organizations whose voices informed the writing and passage of New York State's most recent legislation connected to sexual violence. The 'Enough is Enough' legislation, adopted in July 2015, provides guidelines for institutions of higher education statewide in their treatment of the pervasive problem of sexual violence on campus.
As a part of this effort, the Alliance launched the Campus Training Institute (CTI), a premier training program designed to assist campuses with developing innovative approaches to sexual violence prevention. CTI has been built to meet the requirements of critical federal and state legislation (Enough is Enough, Title IX and the Clery Act) while helping colleges and universities address sexual violence among students, staff and faculty, from an intersectional and trauma-informed perspective. We assist campuses with their onboarding and ongoing educational and training efforts on a wide range of topics including rape culture, effects of sexual violence, consent and bystander engagement. In 2016, we engaged more than 500 students, faculty and administrators from 10 colleges and universities in NYC.
