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 programs on their campuses, including providing primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention responses that address both the occurrence of violence and the inequalities that create it. Through involvement in Knowledge Communities, the Commission on Equity and Inclusion, Enough is Enough, the Center for Women, the Violence Prevention Conference and other NASPA events, and writing and research opportunities, 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 Right Now - January 2017

    The start of a new year often brings an opportunity for renewal, growth, and new beginnings. While there have been significant challenges in this academic year, I am optimistic about the future because of the passion, commitment, and energy I feel from our community. NASPA continues to engage in the integral aspects of student learning, closing the achievement gap, access and equity, and many other issues that have an impact on our students. I look forward to continuing an action-oriented and collaborative student affairs agenda that will provide meaningful support to our students, our colleagues, and our profession.
