Allied Professional Award from the Congressional Victims' Rights Caucus Awarded April 18, 2012 in Washington D.C. because of the "remarkable work they have done in just a few short years to prevent crime and help survivors of violence recover,” said Congressman Cardoza.
The Violence Prevention Program (VPP) provides culturally sensitive responses to and education about sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and stalking. The VPP serves all individuals affiliated with UC Merced including students, staff and faculty members.
OUR MISSION: To provide education on these topics for all incoming UC Merced students, provide training for those who may be first responders on these issues, and to create a coordinated community response in order to best serve survivors. We are working to create a community where it is clear that perpetrating acts of sexual violence is unacceptable. Our program provides prevention education for the campus community, as well as advocacy for survivors, friends and family of survivors.
