Preventing Sexual Violence in Missouri: Empowering College Students to Stop Sexual Violence BEFORE it Occurs

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is using an innovative approach to prevent rape and other forms of sexual violence across the state. With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program, Missouri is working collaboratively with diverse stakeholders, including the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (MCADSV), Partners in Prevention, and many colleges and universities across the state to stop sexual violence BEFORE it occurs. As a result of its collaborative work, Missouri has refocused and refined its approach to preventing sexual violence.
