Dr. Jeanne Irwin-Olson

Dr. Jeanne Irwin-Olson (Recreation and Wellness) received from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) a North Carolina Rape Prevention and Education Program Primary Prevention Community Grant. The abstract notes that under United States federal law, most notably Title IX and the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, all students are guaranteed a right to an education free from sexual violence.  UNCG’s Wellness Center is well known on the UNCG campus and in the greater Greensboro community for being actively involved in reducing interpersonal violence, sexual assault and violence against women. The Kaplan Center for Wellness also houses the UNCG Sexual Violence Campus Advocacy Program (SVCA). Last academic year, 4,683 students participated in programs related to sexual assault, sexual harassment, and dating violence, the abstract further notes.
