From Classroom to Dorm Room: Serving Survivors of Sexual Assault with Disabilities

Author: Kaitlin Shetler

I am currently a Senior Program Associate at Vera Institute of Justice, working on Center on Victimization and Safety team. I provide Technical Assistance for OVW's Disability Grant Program, and lead several trainings throughout the year on how to best serve survivors with disabilities. Before this position, I spent five years as the director of Disability Services at Lipscomb University. During that time, I also served as a Title IX investigator, working with students experiencing sexual assault, stalking, harassment, and discrimination. I have five years of university-level teaching experience, and over 10 years experience working at the intersection of interpersonal violence and disability.
