The goal of the Violence Intervention & Prevention (VIP) Program is to create a campus culture that is safe and equitable for all members. Through education and support, we hope to create a culture of gender equity free from gender-based and sexual violence.

VIP Program and GEVA team members work with and serves any member, regardless of identity or background, of the CSS campus community. VIP Program Staff works and collaborates with folks who will serve any campus community member of all different gender identities, gender expressions, and sexualities regardless of whether they are a primary, secondary, or tertiary victim/survivor.
