Student Advisory Team for Violence Prevention and Support
The Being Barnard program is looking for students interested in addressing sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking issues on college campuses and in the community. A Student Violence Prevention Advisory Team will be formed with interested students.
Established in Spring 2018, the student advisory board is a means for students to actively engage in violence prevention efforts with the Program Coordinator for Prevention Education. In order to address more urgent concerns of students, the student advisory team was temporarily put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In Fall 2022, the student advisory team will return.
The advisory team offers students the opportunity to become involved on campus, learn about Being Barnard and community partner initiatives. Applications will be accepted year-round on a rolling-admissions basis. Applicants will be updated on the status of their application within two weeks of submission. All students are welcome and encouraged to apply
Each month the student advisory team meets with the Program Coordinator for Prevention Education to discuss changes they want to see on the Barnard campus regarding violence prevention.
Violence Prevention Advisory Team Members will be able to:
- Assist the Program Coordinator for Prevention Education
