Advocacy for interpersonal violence
September 23, 2014
Interpersonal Violence (IV) includes harassment, dating violence, sexual violence, bullying and stalking. Unfortunately, individuals do experience IV. And, those who do, can benefit by discussing their experience with someone who listens, believes and acts in their best interest.
Advocate and case manager Beth Riley is available and willing to help. Located in the Dean of Students office, she can discuss options, connect students to resources and help them be heard. Do you know a student who is struggling from interpersonal violence? A great first step would be to suggest the Dean of Students Office as a resource for the student.
For more information, go online
. If you have any questions or concerns, or are not sure if what the student has experienced is IV, contact Beth Riley via e-mail
or call 607-777-2804.
