Violence Prevention

Prevention and Intervention of Interpersonal Violence

 

Interpersonal violence is a cultural phenomenon that is reflected on today’s college campuses. As members of the campus community and advocates for student well-being, athletics departments are called upon to contribute to campus efforts to prevent and appropriately intervene in cases of sexual assault, hazing, harassment and abuse.  By effectively addressing interpersonal violence and sexual assault, athletics departments provide that student-athletes leave their college campuses better prepared to lead satisfying lives, help others and make positive contributions to society.   In this way, Athletics will help not only its campus and department become safer, we can contribute to breaking the cycle of violence that is often passed from one generation to another through families.  The resources located on this site support those education efforts.
