VIP provides students, staff, and faculty the tools, support, and opportunities to shape a violence-free campus through the design and delivery of innovative and inclusive programming and services

The Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Center works with students, staff, faculty, and community partners toward the mission of eliminating the perpetration of power-based personal violence including sexual assault, partner violence and stalking.
While our heart is ensuring that victims of violence are met with the very best support, compassion and services that is humanly possible - our passion is reducing the number of individuals who ever become victims of violence to begin with.
