Campus Against Violence

Peer Education Program

PLEASE NOTE, PROGRAM SUSPENDED:  The CAV Peer Education Program was funded through a grant from the Department of Justice (DOJ).  Funding from the DOJ has ended, so the Peer Education program has been suspended until such time as further funding can be identified.

The Campus Against Violence Program is an exciting peer education program designed to respond to issues of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking on Salisbury University’s campus. Through student led workshops, skills training and public awareness campaigns, peer educators have the opportunity to help shape the CAV Program, become campus leaders and empower other students to speak out and prevent sexual violence. The CAV Peer Education program will tackle the issue of sexual violence through interactive workshops, publications, public awareness campaigns, campus-wide events, film weeks and other innovative activities.
