Stop the Violence Project
Although a university campus is a place for learning and growing, unfortunately, as a microcosm of society, it can also be a place of violence. When young women arrive on campus they are told both how to register for courses and how to deter sexual assaults. They must learn the location of emergency call boxes as well classrooms and libraries. However, women are not the only victim/survivors of violence as men can be victimized, too.
According to one Texas study, one in five Texas women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime and one in twenty men.
The Stop the Violence Project is meant to education and empower individuals about violence affecting the collegiate community. The project will focus on four topical areas: dating violence, stalking, sexual assault, and sexual harassment.
The following linked pages will provide information on each topic including definitions, statistics, warning signs, and prevention efforts. Additionally, resources will be listed for the local, state, and national levels.
The Stop the Violence Project by the Women's Resource Center was compiled by
Elisa Gonzalez, WRC volunteer, and Beverly McPhail, WRC director. We hope you
find the information provided to be helpful.
