Interpersonal Violence Prevention Team

The Interpersonal Violence Prevention Team (IVPT) is funded by the Campus Program grant from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence against Women (OVW). The IVP Team is a multidisciplinary team of campus and community stakeholders focused on collaboratively and proactively ending gender-based violence on L&C campus in order to foster a safer learning environment and to develop civic leaders.
