Position
University of Houston, Assistant Director of Sexual Violence Prevention & Education

Anneliese Bustillo serves as the Assistant Director for Sexual Violence Prevention & Education at the University of Houston where she empowers college students to make healthy, informed decisions about their sexual health and their relationships. In spring 2018, Anneliese worked with a team of professional staff members who trained over 8,000 UH employees in person on Title IX, reporting policies, and how to compassionately support survivors of sexual assault. She also oversees the Title IX Talks program, chairs the Division of Student Affairs’ Sexual Violence Prevention Strategies Committee, and sits on the Sexual Misconduct Response Team.

From past experiences working with survivors, Anneliese found her passion in primary prevention. She enjoys speaking with students about consent, bystander intervention, and above all, being an agent for positive change. Anneliese hopes to do more research on how we can challenge societal norms that contribute to the prevalence of sexual violence.

Anneliese holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Arts from The George Washington University. While at UT, she was named a Rapoport Service Scholar and an Archer Fellow. In 2017, Anneliese was a finalist for the Texas Tech University President’s Excellence in Gender Equity Award and she was named the University’s Ally of the Year by the Gender & Sexuality Association. Anneliese never shies away from a learning opportunity and is currently striving to increase her knowledge on ableism, transgender rights, and global perceptions of masculinity.
