What work do Violence Prevention Student Coordinators do?
The Violence Prevention Student Coordinators focus on creating educational materials, programs, and content that focuses on preventing violence of all kinds.
They help the Women*s Center design and implement ongoing programming to work towards effectively preventing violence on campus, including guest speakers, workshops, events and film series. Topic areas may include, but are not limited to, sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, stalking, bullying, bystander intervention and online personal safety. Learn more about our programs and how to get involved!
Our Violence Prevention Student Coordinators are interested in gathering a group of students from diverse backgrounds, majors, and grade levels to gage interest in various violence prevention measures on campus.
Focus group members will provide feedback and brainstorm topics for student education, including stalking, domestic violence, bullying, cyberstalking, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and other various topics addressing interpersonal violence. No experience is necessary, but creativity and passion for violence prevention are highly encouraged!
Applications for Spring 2022 opening soon. This is a semester-long commitment of virtual/in-person bi-weekly meetings (date and time to be determined, varies each semester).
