This presentation will provide insight on the needed collaboration between victim services and health promotion outreach when serving Black students in higher education/ institutional spaces. This time will be used to highlight the perception of strength, historical examples of mistreatment in regard to health, wellbeing, and safety, and discuss how this impacts Black students' experiences in higher education. The facilitators will engage participants to consider their institution and Black community engagement (needs, resources, and support). This session reflects the conference goals by placing a focus on quality education surrounding prevention by providing information on how history impacts Black community engagement in institutions of higher education. It will use the socio-ecological model and other evidence/informed based-practices to address barriers and advantages to resources, support, and outreach for Black students. It will also include considerations for collaboration, direct and indirect educational programming for Black students in higher education/institutional spaces. The goal of the presentation is to provide information to increase efforts of health wellbeing and safety and reduce gender-based violence in Black communities.
