Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM)
Please download the DVAM flyer for all campus activities the month of October, 2020.
Violence is a serious public health problem that affects people across the lifespan and often leaves lasting physical and psychological impacts. The good news is that violence is preventable! Wellness and Health Promotion Services is leading our campus toward a violence-free future by providing information, education, resources, and referrals related to sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking. Our goal is to help survivors, friends, loved ones, and allies find the information and resources they need to help us end violence before it happens.

Our approach to Violence Prevention
- Prevention strategies at the individual level promote attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that prevent violence. Wellness and Health Promotion Services provides a variety of presentations and workshops that promote healthy attitudes and behaviors related to relationships and sexuality.
- Prevention strategies at the relationship level include conflict resolution skills training and health relationship skills training.
- Prevention strategies at this level impact the social and physical environment. Wellness and Health Promotion Services works to educate the campus community about Bystander intervention approaches and mobilize men and boys as allies.
