The Texas Stalking Project aims to reduce stalking, dating and domestic violence, and sexual assault on college campuses and promote victim safety. This is a consortium award between The University of Texas at Austin, Institute on Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault and The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Office on Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance.
Project priorities are to develop, strengthen, and implement campus policies, protocols, and services that more effectively identify and respond to the crimes of stalking and other forms of interpersonal violence, including the use of technology to commit these crimes. The project provides training for campus administrators, campus security personnel, and personnel serving on campus disciplinary or judicial boards on policies, protocols, and services. The project also implements and operates education programs for the prevention of stalking. Activities include a focus on improving service delivery for underserved communities on campus. Project outcomes are achieved through a collaboration between UT Austin offices and departments, local criminal justice agencies, and local victim service providers.
