Evolve 360 FAQs
What is Evolve 360? Who is it for?
Evolve 360 is a landmark and industry-changing way at looking at preventing, responding to, and healing from interpersonal violence. There is one version for k-12 schools and another for higher education. Evolve 360 doesn't want to just give another speech or present a single webinar and then leave: we know that doesn't do anything long term. We designed this program for schools that need help in revitalizing and re-energizing their Title IX and sexual misconduct programs from the ground up- while saving time and money.
What does it cover?
Evolve 360 looks at all areas of interpersonal violence and customizes programming to the needs, goals, and demographics of each institution. The main areas we work on include:
Healthy Relationships & Domestic Violence
Sexual Agency and Wellness
LGBTQ Inclusion and Trans Policy Design
Rape Acceptance Myths
Supporting Male Survivors
Universal Access (Accessibility for Disabled Populations)
Respondent Resources and Restorative Justice
Future Trends in Federal and State Policy
What is the timeline?
Depending on the number of areas that need to be addressed, the program takes on average 6-9 months. All programs are completely customized to the needs of each school but in general, include:
1. A free consultation session with key stakeholders to define goals and objectives.
2. First official meeting of the Evolve 360 committee. This includes students, administration, and faculty.
3. Student focus group research. A mixed-methods approach the asked each institution's students for their perspective on current efforts and desired areas of growth. Students are then asked to volunteer as part of the advisory committee that will monitor the progress of the Evolve 360 program, creating buy-in and inclusivity.
4. Solidifying dates, milestones, and training sessions with committee based on focus group feedback.
5. A minimum of three trainings dates are selected and topics identified. This includes train the trainer sessions and program design workshops.
6. Strategic planning summit for Evolve 360. All stakeholders are present and a holistic plan for long-term growth, transparency, and accountability is designed.
7. Final meeting with the committee and the Evolve 360 staff. Mapping of next steps and follow-up after the conclusion of the program to ensure initiatives remain energized and obtainable.
Is this expensive?
The price is generally 1/4 to 1/2 of what similar options and programs cost. Think for a moment how much multiple trainings, hiring new subject matter experts, and program management would be- at least three times our fees! Additionally, the trainings and program can be used for multiple schools who need similar areas of assistance and evolution i.e. three schools in a single state can decide to share the program and split the cost.
What is the certification?
Once a school or schools complete their Evolve 360 training plan they are awarded the Evolve 360 Certification. This shows students, parents, and current/potential employees that your school is not just checking boxes on compliance. You are an industry leader in harm reduction, radical inclusion, and sexual misconduct prevention and response.
