Culture of Respect
Culture of Respect, an initiative of NASPA (National Association of Student Personnel Administrators), builds the capacity of educational institutions to end sexual violence through ongoing, expansive organizational change. Culture of Respect works with diverse stakeholders to ensure institutions create policies and programs that support survivors, prevent sexual violence, and communicate that violence is unacceptable. In February 2021, Asheville School partnered with Culture of Respect with the goal of advancing their organizational culture and policies towards those aims.
Following the completion of the CORE Evaluation and the receipt of Asheville School’s results from Culture of Respect, the Campus Leadership Team began building the first phase of the Action Plan which will guide our work and investments in the near term to further strengthen our community’s knowledge, skills, communication, and practices. The objectives outlined in the Action Plan (PDF) are our starting points.
