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:
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.
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.

large and small-scale programs throughout the academic year designed to raise
awareness about interpersonal violence and engage our community in activism
