Not Alone at the Beach: Levels of Involvement
Level 1: Notification List
Select this option if you would like to be included on a list of faculty who will be notified about Not Alone at the Beach programming. We expect to send out emails multiple times per semester with information about our programming and requests to post flyers on Beachboard/Canvas.
Level 2: Not Alone at the Beach Ambassador
Select this option if you would like to be a Not Alone at the Beach Ambassador for your department. We are looking for one person per department who agrees to disseminate information about Not Alone at the Beach programming to faculty and students in their department. This may involve forwarding emails and flyers to your faculty listserve with encouragement to post this information on Beachboard/Canvas.

Level 3: Coordinated Community Response Team
Select this level if you are interested in attending Coordinated Community Response Team meetings. The Coordinated Community Response Team meets once per semester for approximately 1.5 hours. This is an opportunity for representatives from key units on campus involved with the campus response to sexual assault to inform one another of ongoing activities. CCRT members include representatives from the Title IX office, Campus Police, Student Affairs, Housing, Counseling Services, Health Services, and Not Alone at the Beach. The Coordinated Community Response Team also includes community partners from local rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters, and trauma centers who likewise update the team on their services. While no actual planning takes place during these meetings, attending the CCRT meetings is a good way to stay abreast of sexual assault-related policies, practices, and programming on campus. Anyone is welcome to attend.
