There was good news Friday (July 31) regarding UW-Green Bay educational efforts on issues related to sexual violence. Aurora Health Care announced grants to two dozen community organizations in eastern Wisconsin (including UWGB) totaling $3.4 million from Aurora’s community-focused Better Together Fund. The $127,786 grant to the University will be used to develop the “Relationship and Sexual Violence Program.” Specifically, funding will allow the University to hire and train a campus health educator, create an increased online and social media presence around the topics of healthy relationships, sexual assault and bystander intervention, and expand educational programs to students, faculty and staff. Brenda Amenson-Hill, dean of students, is the point person on the project, having led UW-Green Bay’s grant application and planning process. The team included Amenson-Hill, Lidia Nonn, Mark Olkowski, Joanie Dovekas, Tom Kujawa and Amy Henniges. To read more about the Aurora grant program, and to see a full list of recipients.
