Michigan Tech is among 13 public and private colleges and universities in the state selected to receive a share of more than $381,000 to implement innovative and strategic sexual assault prevention programs on campus.
The announcement of the grants was made Monday by Michigan First Lady Sue Snyder.
In addition, the First Lady also announced a second round of grants to fund specific innovative bystander intervention programs.
Michigan Tech is slated to receive $11,920 in grant funding. Governor Snyder has recommended the state legislature appropriate funds from the fiscal year 2018 general fund to support the Campus Sexual Assault Grant Program (CSAGP).
In making the announcement, Sue Snyder said “Once again, Michigan’s colleges and universities have stepped up and developed innovative sexual assault awareness and prevention programs to be implemented on our state’s campuses.
She added, “I’m excited that this year we will be offering a second round of grants to fund specific programs and tools that are nationally recognized as effective awareness and prevention strategies.” The First Lady said she hopes every college, community college and university in the state will apply to receive funding for the resources that will continue to make Michigan’s campuses safer.
