Mission

We strive to create a campus culture free from violence and built upon healthy relationships and consent. We prevent interpersonal violence through education and we compassionately respond to survivors of trauma to promote healing. We define interpersonal violence to be inclusive of sexual violence, dating violence, stalking, sexual harassment, and hate violence.
