UNH's SHARPP Gets Social
The Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention Program (SHARPP) provides support, advocacy, information, and prevention education on the issues of relationship violence, sexual violence, and stalking to the University of New Hampshire Durham campus.
Since its creation in 1988, violence is still an issue at UNH but the way
SHARPP engages students has shifted dramatically.
Students are no longer wanting to visit the department during office
hours or meet in the student center for traditional in-person education.
To meet the needs of students, SHARPP has changed its whole approach to
outreach and now seeks to get social with
the UNH community and meet students where they are… online. Dawn D. Zitney was hired as the first media outreach coordinator for SHARPP, also the
first department at UNH and the first college campus crisis
center in the country to hire a staff member whose
main job function is to use social media and emerging technology to
outreach to students. Through Facebook and Twitter, SHARPP is educating
the community and sparking dialogue about violence prevention. Using
YouTube they're working with students to create
multimedia snippets on how they define and get sexual consent. With chat rooms, SHARPP is also expanding the ways they provide
direct services to survivors of violence and those who care about them... and this is just the beginning.
