What is Interpersonal Violence?
Student Wellness & Health Promotion recognizes the prevalence and impact of sexual violence, sexual exploitation, interpersonal violence, stalking, and harassment within higher education. We are committed to the role we play in providing a safe and supportive campus community.
In addition to supporting a campus-wide response with the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART), Student Wellness & Health Promotion develops, implements, and supports primary prevention efforts seeking to change the underlying conditions and structures that enable violence, including systems of oppression. Our violence prevention programs strive to reduce risk factors and promote protective factors at each level of the socio-ecological model. Our main educational focus supports evidenced based primary prevention efforts of gender/sexual violence and interpersonal violence including; teaching consent, concepts of a healthy relationship, bystander intervention and creating a culture where survivors are believed.
