The Violence Prevention and Response Task Force


The Violence Prevention and Response Task Force (VPRTF), which includes representatives from the Women’s Center, UMKC and KCMO Police Departments, Counseling, Health, and Testing Center, Student Affairs, Athletics Department, International Student Affairs Office, Residential Life, Student Life, Rose Brooks Center, Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault, and the Kansas City Anti-Violence Project, was formed as a coordinated community response to violence against women on campus. The VPRTF meets quarterly, in addition to attending monthly CALCASA webinars. In between formal meetings, the Task Force will be in contact electronically, share information, and establish smaller working groups on specific issues as they arise.
