Niagara University received a three-year, $300,000 Grant to Reduce Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking on Campus from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women. The grant will be used to elevate, expand, and institutionalize the work that Dr. Dana Radatz, assistant professor of criminology and criminal justice, and Dr. Jennifer Beebe, associate professor of counseling/education, have been doing in recent years to advance universitywide education and awareness of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking programming. It will also leverage the university’s existing partnerships with local criminal justice and victim service agencies, including the YWCA of the Niagara Frontier, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, and the New York State Police.
