Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance

The Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance (VPVA) is an office at Rutgers University-New Brunswick that works to address issues of interpersonal violence and other crimes in our community. We specialize in addressing issues of sexual violence, relationship abuse, and stalking. In addition to consultation, policy development, and overall leadership on these issues, we provide three services to our New Brunswick students:

Victim Assistance: If you or a friend have experienced interpersonal violence, help is available. VPVA provides crisis intervention, counseling, and advocacy. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by calling 848-932-1181.

Violence Prevention: Through peer education bystander intervention strategies and addressing toxic gender roles, we provide a range of programs with the goal to engage the entire Rutgers community in working to prevent crimes before they occur.

Educational and Awareness Programs: We provide a variety of large and small-scale programs throughout the academic year designed to raise awareness about interpersonal violence and engage our community in activism around these issues. We encourage collaboration with student groups and other offices. To schedule a program for your group and find out more, reach out to the office.

For more information, to volunteer, or to schedule an appointment or program, call 848-932-1181, visit us at http://vpva.rutgers.edu, or email to vpva@echo.rutgers.edu.
