HUNTINGDON, Pa. — Today, Juniata College has been named a recipient of the Campus Prevention Network (CPN) Seal of Prevention. Presented by EVERFI and Parchment, the CPN Seal of Prevention is awarded to institutions of higher education that have demonstrated a commitment to digital prevention programs tied to student safety, well-being, and inclusion.

Each recipient of the CPN Seal of Prevention has taken action to create a safer, more inclusive campus through comprehensive, evidence-based digital prevention education on issues such as sexual assault, alcohol misuse, mental health, and discrimination. The CPN Seal of Prevention establishes guidelines for discerning quality online prevention education and implementation practices, and positions prevention as central to key institutional outcomes, including: recruitment, student success, retention, and advancement.

“We are excited to name Juniata College in the first-ever class of recipients of the CPN Seal of Prevention,” said Rob Buelow, senior vice president, Higher Education and Impact, EVERFI. “Juniata has done an exceptional job putting student values first and providing proactive digital prevention education that enables student success, inside and outside the classroom.”  

“We appreciate the recognition of our commitment to developing and delivering prevention programs aimed at keeping our students safe and well,” says Juniata College President James A. Troha. “Receiving the Campus Prevention Network’s Seal of Prevention is an honor. We look forward to continuing the work to grow our prevention programs and to provide our students with a strong and supportive community.”

The criteria for the CPN Seal of Prevention are based on the Principles of Effective Prevention Programs published by Nation, et al. (2003).
