Our community advocates are passionate about ending relationship and sexual violence among college students. They generously provide financial support for the center and they engage in advocacy, sharing our mission, our research and our accomplishments in the broader community.  We meet regularly with our advocates and invite them to participate in educational and professional development seminars.
