Violence Prevention

The Center for Equity and Inclusive Excellence, Gender & LGBTQIA Center, and Title IX Office collaborate closely with campus and community partners to create messaging and programming towards the prevention of gender-based violence, including sexual and relationship violence, harassment and stalking. Their prevention efforts include:

  • Haven online education program required for all new students
  • HealthEU skits at New Student Orientation with small-group discussion facilitated by Orientation Leaders
  • Required training for RA’s, Orientation Head Staff and Leaders, Greek House Captains and other key student leadership roles on bystander intervention skills, best practices for consent supporting survivors and campus resources for support, advocacy and reporting
  • Peer education workshops for Elon 101 classes, athletic teams, Greek organizations, residence hall floors and various other student cohorts on topics such as healthy relationships, consent, bystander intervention and supporting survivors
  • Workshops from professional staff about gender roles, pop culture and rape culture
    Supporting Survivors Week events each semester
  • Domestic Violence Awareness Month events during October (These Hands Don’t Hurt, Couples Chemistry, etc.)
  • Sexual Assault Awareness Month events during April (including Take Back the Night)
