Event Details

Violent acts on college and university campuses are an ever present concern.  Suicides are the third leading cause of death to U.S. youth.  Also of concern are acts of interpersonal violence. Through funding received from the Department of Justice, Rhodes State College has developed a free one-day workshop designed to assist colleges and universities in the prevention of acts of violence and self-injury on their campuses.  The class will consist of a discussion of various initiatives and programs concerning what can be done to achieve a safer campus environment.  Six weeks later, participants will be invited to a two-hour teleconference to discuss the successes and challenges that were encountered while implementing  various initiatives at their campuses.  Participants will be provided a toolbox of  recommended prevention initiatives and a process that can be initiated at their campuses.

Rhodes State College has partnered with the Northeast Ohio Medical University and the University of Toledo in making this training available for college and university personnel in northwest Ohio.

 Facilitators will cover: 

  •  A discussion of existing evidence-based prevention models
  •  Assessment of available resources
  •  Developing an effective reporting protocol for potential interpersonal violence and self-risk behaviors among staff, faculty and students.

This free one-day workshop will focus on the best practices of prevention initiatives in higher education settings and is ideal for administrators and student activities personnel. 


Donna Dickman is the Executive Director of the Partnership for Violence Free Families in Allen County, OH.

Lisa Pescara-Kovach, Ph.D.  is an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology in the Department of Educational Foundations and Leadership at The University of Toledo.

The two have a combined total of more than 37 years of experience in dealing with violence prevention and intervention in educational settings.
