Student groups receiving funding from the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations’ Student Advisory Committee will be eligible for more funding if their board members undergo sexual assault prevention training as a result of an agreement between the Harvard Foundation and the Undergraduate Council.
Under the new policy—jointly sponsored by the UC, the Harvard Foundation, and the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response—student organizations whose entire boards undergo OSAPR-run sexual assault prevention training are eligible to receive 20 percent in additional funding from the Harvard Foundation beginning next semester.
If half of a student organization’s board attends training, the group will be eligible for a 10 percent funding increase.
“Our role... will be to help create some of this institutional change to combat sexual assault on campus,” Harvard Foundation Student Advisory Committee co-chair Dylan de Waart ’19 said. “You can’t have an ‘Open Harvard’ without a safe Harvard.”
