  • The CAV Peer Education Program has been suspended until such time as funding to support the program can be identified.

The Campus Against Violence (CAV) Program represents Salisbury University’s commitment to ending sexual violence in all its forms; sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking on campus and providing students with knowledge and skills that will serve them throughout their lives. Over the next two years, the CAV program housed in the Counseling Center, will ensure that the university has a coordinated response to issues of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking among students through peer education, counseling services for affected students, skills training, public awareness campaigns and working in collaboration with faculty, staff and students to create a community that is actively engaged in the prevention of sexual violence.


  • Individual Counseling: Free, confidential counseling services are available to students who are directly or indirectly impacted by sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, relationship violence or stalking.

  • Group Counseling: Group counseling is available for students who have histories of childhood sexual abuse and students who have experienced a sexual assault.

  • Resources: Campus and local community resources are available to students.

Training and Outreach Programming:

  • Interactive workshops: Peer educators provide trainings to residence halls, classrooms, fraternities, sororities and other members of the campus community by request.

  • Campus Publications: Publications providing information about sexual violence are distributed each semester.

  • Campus Activities: Throughout the year, the CAV program hosts campus-wide events and programs related to Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), Stalking Awareness Month (January) and Sexual Assault Awareness Month (April).
