Our Mission

Ursinus College is committed to promoting a campus environment where sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and exploitation are not tolerated, and where every member of the community is expected to do their part to prevent and address violence. The Prevention and Advocacy’s mission is to foster collaborative relationships amongst campus and community partners and mobilize efforts to eradicate all forms of interpersonal violence at Ursinus College. Urisinus is committed to providing survivors and all community members affected by sexual and relationship violence support and avenues of redress as appropriate. Sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking are violations of Urisnus College policy. Our goal is to provide prevention education programs that effectively stop violence before it occurs as well as offer trauma-informed services to empower those who have experienced interpersonal violence.
