The Center for Support and Intervention addresses prevention and intervention for harm and violence on campus, and provides support to students experiencing or causing distress in the campus community.
Our Violence and Harm Prevention work provides direct training to students and staff on bystander intervention strategies. Our Case Management team provides limited threat assessment, consultation, collaboration, and intervention with and for students, faculty, staff, and other campus and community colleagues in order to prevent students and the campus community from experiencing harm and violence.

- Develop and implement harm prevention strategies for the broader campus in collaboration with other campus units.
