Two local colleges are on a mission to improve safety on college campuses.

Both Trocaire and Medaille are receiving a Federal Grant totaling $600,000 to fight campus sexual abuse.

The local schools are just two of 57 recipients Nationwide set to receive funding to better improve and enhance awareness to prevent sexual assault.

The grant will help provide the resources for specialized training for campus law enforcement, healthcare providers and college personnel. Crisis Services will work with both the schools.

The program will be phased in within the next three years.
