SaVE Act Training
The Campus SaVE Act [Section 304 of the reauthorized Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)] was signed into law on March 7, 2013. The Campus SaVE Act requires that institutions of higher education provide mandatory ongoing primary prevention and awareness programs and training for students and employees. The programs must address several topics related to rape, acquaintance rape, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
Each employee will receive an e-mail with a link to the
online training module. The e-mail will also contain a unique username
and password for that employee. The employee clicks on the link and logs
into the online module using his/her unique username and password.
The Campus SaVE Act module—Bridges: Building a Supportive Community—is a collaboration between Ball State and an online training vendor, LawRoom.com.
