Coordinated Community Response Team

Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) Mission Statement 

The CCRT of the Cavalier Safeguard Initiative is a collaborative body of campus and community experts who provide the Walsh University community with inclusive, culturally competent and trauma-focused education, safety and prevention efforts to end sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking.

CCRT Structure 

Members of the CCRT represent the diverse fields and persons involved in addressing sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking efforts at Walsh University and in the broader community, including those professionals who serve domestic minority and traditionally underrepresented populations who may be disproportionately impacted by these crimes. The CCRT is comprised of students, faculty and staff, including:

  • The Title IX Coordinator and Deputies
  • Chief Judicial Officer and Judicial Hearing Officers
  • Campus Police
  • Student Affairs Staff
  • Human Resources Staff
  • Athletics Staff
  • Prevention Educators
  • Victim Service Providers

Representatives from COMPASS Sexual Assault Education, Prevention & Support, Domestic Violence Project, Inc., and the Victim/Witness Division of the Stark County Prosecutor’s Office also serve on Walsh’s CCRT.
