We envision a BU community and world that is just, equitable, and free of violence.


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.


  • Raise awareness and broaden the BU community’s understanding of interpersonal violence
  • Educate and enhance the skills of community members towards the creation of safe and healthy relationships.
  • Promote survivor healing through trauma-informed counseling
  • Advocate for survivors through empowerment, education, and accompaniment
  • Influence local and global efforts to prevent and respond to interpersonal violence
  • Respond compassionately to traumatic events that impact the BU community
