Anti-Violence Initiatives Mission

Guided by the Division of Student Affairs’ Mission, Anti-Violence Initiatives leads the campus effort to address issues of sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking. We work with our community partners to create a campus environment that is intolerant of abuse, responsive to needs of victims/survivors, and holds perpetrators accountable for their actions. Our objective is to establish a campus culture for safety, free from power-based personal violence, resulting in a safer living and learning environment.

In order to satisfy the mission, two sets of goals have been developed:

For Students

  • Provide tools to develop healthy relationship skills
  • Increase awareness and accessibility to resources
  • Facilitate transitions from one victim-service provider to another
  • Ensure victims are treated with respect and appropriate action is taken

For Staff & Faculty

  • To increase knowledge about the victim-service response system and the role of referral agents
  • To cultivate a sense of shared ownership for the prevention of power-based personal violence

Anti-Violence Initiatives was created through the Grant to Reduce Violent Crime Against Women on Campus program from the U.S. Department of Justice – Office on Violence Against Women. The Office operates according to the CARE philosophy of CHOICE ~ ADVOCACY ~ RESPECT ~ EMPOWERMENT, emphasizing these values in all aspects of the victim-service response.
