Violence Prevention

The Violence Prevention focus area brings together a variety of NASPA programs that provide resources for members to build comprehensive and intentional violence prevention and response programs on their campuses, including providing primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention that address both the occurrence of violence and its root causes. Through involvement in NASPA’s many constituent groups, including the Campus Safety and Violence Prevention KC, Men and Masculinities KC, the Campus Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention and Response KC, and Women in Student Affairs, you can engage with and learn from other professionals who are responsible for addressing a wide range of violence prevention and response concerns, including student conduct professionals, prevention educators, advocates, and Title IX coordinators, among others. Additionally, NASPA hosts professional development events such as the Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Conference: A NASPA Strategies conference among others, where you can learn how to educate yourself and others about violence and the culture that supports it, to become an advocate for victims, and to create more inclusive campus climates. NASPA is also proud to be the home of Culture of Respect, an initiative dedicated to working with college stakeholders to improve institutional efforts to address sexual violence on campus.

    We, the Indigenous Peoples Knowledge Community (IPKC) and the Asian Pacific Islander Knowledge Community (APIKC) stand in firm support of the kia'i (protectors) of Mauna Kea. We have witnessed with admiration, pride, and aloha as our relations, the kia’i of Mauna Kea, have mobilized—to defend from harm—one of the most sacred places in Hawaiian cosmology, Mauna Kea. The mountain, a majestic location at the heart of Hawai‘i island, is revered as the birthplace of the Hawaiian people. In contrast, this site is perceived by scientists as the ideal future home for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) Project.

  • Hazing Prevention Legislation in 2019

    Hazing culture can be unique to each incident, which means campus leaders are in the best position to take steps to have an impact on their campus. It’s important for legislation and policy designed to prevent hazing to recognize the need for campus leaders to be able to respond with flexibility, while also creating frameworks for sharing promising practices and transparency in tracking and responding to incidents.
