Campus Program [Department of Justice] Law and Legal Definition

The campus program refers to the U.S. Department of Justice Grants to Reduce Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking on Campus. It is designed to encourage institutions of higher education to adopt comprehensive, coordinated responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. According to the program, campuses, in partnership with community-based nonprofit victim advocacy organizations and local criminal justice or civil legal agencies, must adopt protocols and policies that treat violence against women as a serious offense and develop victim service programs that ensure victim safety, offender accountability, and the prevention of such crimes.
