Campus Prevention Network Seal of Prevention

In 2020, Vector Solutions introduced the Campus Prevention Network (CPN) Seal of Prevention™. This prestigious award recognizes colleges and universities that consistently demonstrate a commitment to world-class digital prevention programs tied to bettering student safety, well-being, and inclusion. The 2023 list of recipients has just been announced. Read on to see which institutions got this distinction and how the CPN Seal of Prevention certificate can improve your recruitment, retention, and long-term institutional success.

How is the CPN Seal of Prevention awarded?

The colleges and organizations that received the 2023 CPN Seal of Prevention™ have taken commendable initiative in making their campuses safer and more inclusive. They’ve been using digital prevention education to tackle important issues like sexual assault, alcohol misuse, mental health, and harassment and discrimination. The CPN Seal of Prevention™ shines a spotlight on the institution’s efforts and acknowledges the importance of these commitments to students and parents when choosing a college.

The CPN Seal of Prevention™ criteria are based on the Principles of Effective Prevention Programs published by Nation, et. al. in 2003. Vector Solutions evaluates over a thousand colleges, universities, and national organizations each year to determine the quality of their digital programming. This evaluation is based on evidence-based prevention principles established through two decades of research and practice in the field.

Who does the CPN Seal of Prevention™ help?

The CPN Seal of Prevention™ serves as a symbol of excellence in campus safety and inclusivity efforts. Institutions that receive this seal are recognized for their dedication to the well-being of their students. But it doesn’t stop there. According to research conducted by Vector Solutions, prevention work is directly tied to recruitment, retention, and long-term institutional success.

  • 34% of high school seniors are more likely to attend a college or university that has achieved the CPN Seal of Prevention™.
  • Institutions that receive the CPN Seal of Prevention™, on average, have an 8% higher first-year retention rate.
  • Institutions that receive the CPN Seal of Prevention™, on average, have a 9% higher on-time four- year graduation rate compared to those that have not achieved the Seal.

This recognition also plays a crucial role in helping students and parents make informed decisions during the college search process.

Alright, who was awarded the CPN Seal of Prevention™ this year?

And now, here’s the list you’ve been waiting for! These Seal of Prevention recipients can work with Parchment to issue shareable digital badges and certificates to eligible students, faculty/staff, and institutional leaders through Parchment’s Award platform upon completion of CPN safety, well-being, and inclusion courses.
