NCAA taps Stop It Now! to Prevent Abuse

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has joined forces with Stop It Now! to offer its members resources to prevent and respond to child sexual abuse. In an Open Letter to Higher Education Community, NCAA President Mark Emmert writes:

“…none of us knows how deeply issues of sexual abuse run within the education community at any level or society as a whole. But we know that one instance is more than we can bear....No individual or component within the broad education community – from grade school to graduate school – is above the expectations for teaching and protecting those in our care.”

Take Action! Read the NCAA letter and review the prevention resources below.
