About Us

The GBV Prevention Office is supported by the Campus Program grant, which was awarded to Bellevue College by the Office on Violence Against Women in 2018. The Campus Program encourages a comprehensive coordinated community approach and supports activities that develop and strengthen trauma-informed victim services and strategies to prevent, investigate, and respond to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

Coordinated Community Response Team

A Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) is a multi-disciplinary team of campus and community partners that meet regularly to assess, plan, monitor, and evaluate campus prevention and response efforts. BC’s CCRT includes staff and faculty from multiple departments and offices including Student Conduct; Title IX; Residence Life; Public Safety; Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion; Student Programs; Disability Resource Center; Athletics; International Education; Grant Development; Occupational Life Skills; Health and Physical Education; Criminal Justice; and others. The CCRT also includes representatives from BC’s community partners LifeWire, King County Sexual Assault Resource Center, and Bellevue Police Department.

Mission Statement

The Bellevue College CCRT engages campus and community partners in collaboration to develop and enhance trauma-informed programs and educate the Bellevue College community to prevent gender-based violence by challenging the beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that perpetuate it.
