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.

    Each spring, volunteer teams from around the country work to coordinate regional spring conferences. Since regional spring conferences are geographically based, they provide a more personalized and relaxed conference setting. Regional conferences also allow peer education groups to expand on presentations from General Assembly as well as network for future collaborations. Applications to host a spring conference in 2018 are now available. We welcome you to attend any of the regional spring conferences if the location or dates are a better fit.
