Get Involved as a Student

Get Involved as a Student Group

  • Join the Anti-Violence Engagement Network (AVEN). Sexual violence is a community problem that needs community based solutions. Student groups play an important role on campus in creating culture, setting standards for appropriate behavior, and supporting students. We are launching this new program soon to work closely with student groups who want to be part of the solution. 
  • Request a presentation for your student group. Workshops usually ranging from 1-2 hours can be presented to groups both large and small and can cover a range of topics related to relationship violence, sexual violence, and stalking. 

Get Involved as Faculty or Staff

  • Attend Anti-Violence Advocate (AVA) Training, an annual 15-hour training about interpersonal violence for Penn faculty and staff. The training is designed to educate participants about dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking so that they are able to recognize and respond to these issues on Penn's campus.
  • Request a presentation for your department or office. Workshops usually ranging from 1-2 hours can be presented to groups both large and small and can cover a range of topics related to relationship violence, sexual violence, and stalking.
  • Join the Penn Violence Prevention Committee. The PVP committee is made up of over 50 faculty and staff members who meet bi-annually to review the past, present, and upcoming programs offered under PVP. Committee members act as campus advocates against violence and often make up working groups to help inform future efforts.
