Safety from violence begins with knowledge, respect and unity of purpose. Collin College is committed to ensuring the continued safety and well-being of our campus community. Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Violence Against Women, Collin College is confronting the issues of stalking, sexual assault and intimate partner violence head-on through ZERO Tolerance of Violence.
Project ZERO is a coordinated effort to provide education to the student community about the myths and facts regarding this criminal behavior, about resources available for assisting victims and about the recognition and prevention of violence. For Project ZERO, Collin has partnered with two agencies providing exceptional services to Collin County--The Turning Point (formerly the Rape Crisis Center of Collin County) and Hope's Door Shelter and Counseling Center.
The grant mandates an educational component, and we are pleased to launch the inaugural version of Collin's Online Educational Modules located at www.ccccd.edu/zero. It will serve each of us well to review the information available on this website, as it will act to unite us in dignity and respect.
Please contact Sandy Suvannackkham at 972.881.5820 with any questions.
Thank you for being at Collin College. Stay well
President Cary A. Israel
