A campus Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program was recommended by MSU’s Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct Expert Advisory Workgroup. RCGV faculty, Dr. Rebecca Campbell who is chair of the RVSM Expert Advisory Workgroup was recently featured in the Lansing State Journal for her work. Bringing nurses with special training in response to sexual assault will help aid survivors in their post-assault health care experiences and help them in their healing process. We are proud of Dr. Campbell’s dedication to helping survivors of sexual assault.    

About RCGV

MSU’s Research Consortium on Gender-Based Violence faculty and staff are dedicated to research and outreach initiatives related to ending and preventing gender-based violence and improving the community response to survivors.

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a significant and widespread social problem internationally, devastating adults, children, families and societies across the globe. It includes any form of harm that is both a consequence and cause of gender power inequities. It can be physical, psychological, sexual, economic, or sociocultural, and includes but is not limited to sexual abuse, rape, intimate partner abuse, incest, sexual harassment, stalking, femicide, trafficking, gendered hate crimes and dowry abuse. Gender-based violence intersects with race-based, class-based or religiously oppressive forms of abuse, and cross-cuts many other social problems (e.g., poverty, substance abuse, mental and physical health, crime).
