SAVP is committed to providing both peer-to-peer and administrator-led violence prevention workshops to the Vassar campus community throughout the academic year. Workshops include information and training around issues of consent, sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking, the impact of rigid gender norms and stereotypes, and effective bystander intervention tools to confront gender-based violence in your community!

During first year orientation, incoming students will complete a three-tiered violence prevention program consisting of: 

  • Think About It, an online course that introduces topics such as consent, bystander intervention, and healthy relationships
  • Speak About It, an engaging performance covering issues related to violence prevention in our campus community
  • We Are Here, a peer-led discussion-based workshop that helps students to think through strategies to safely intervene in potentially risk situations

SAVP offers annual trainings including Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) workshops for all student athletes as well as bystander intervention training for all student organization leaders each fall.

Workshops can also be tailored to fit the needs of your group or organization. If you would like more information or resources please email savp@vassar.edu or fill out the form below to request a violence prevention workshop!
