No one should suffer from sexual or interpersonal violence, ever. At Student Wellness we focus on prevention and creating awareness that helps reduce initial perpetration or victimization.

Most commonly, research indicates it's men perpetrating violence on women or transgender people, yet it also occurs between same genders and by women in heterosexual relationships.

At UNC-Chapel Hill, we focus on the primary prevention of sexual violence and interpersonal violence, or approaches that take place before violence has occurred to prevent initial perpetration or victimization.

Every person on campus plays a role in creating change to end violence, discrimination and harassment. Do your part. Help us create change.
