Mission Statement

The mission of the Center for Violence Prevention (CVP) is to build the capacity of institutions of higher education, K-12 schools, victim service agencies, law enforcement and the criminal justice system to systematically implement best practice violence prevention, victim service, and evaluation strategies in collaboration with state, family and community partners. The UNI CVP will function as a statewide training center offering annual conferences for community and campus victim-services providers, community and campus police and educators. CVP will support the development of best practices for responding to and preventing interpersonal violence at Iowa’s three state universities.
