what is Violence Prevention?
Edmonds Community College Violence Prevention believes that everyone deserves love, friendship, and family without fear, control, or violence. That is why we provide education and support services to our campus community. Our program is located in the Wellness Center in Lynnwood Hall, Room 236.
Violence Prevention was established in 2016 as a coordinated community response to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking on campus. Our message is 1) violence in relationships will not be tolerated in our community and 2) it is everyone's responsibility to do their part to prevent harm.
Violence Prevention Programs
Advocates help individuals affected by assault and abuse to better understand the options and resources available to them. There are trained and confidential professionals both on campus and in the community. You may also consult with an advocate if you are a concerned loved one, classmate, and or colleague who suspects that someone you know is being harmed.
Violence Prevention presents educational programs to students and employees across campus about how to prevent violence in relationships. We can infuse our curriculum topics into classes, meetings, and professional development workshops.
Violence Prevention provides training for members of the campus community in how to effectively respond to incidents of sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, and stalking. We collaborate with any department that requests specialized training for faculty and staff.
Coordinated Community Response
Our Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) leads initiatives with the aim of reducing incidents of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking on our campus. We know that the Violence Prevention vision to end power based personal violence will only be achieved through the dedicated teamwork, cooperation, and regular communication between campus and community partners.
