Advocates are available to assist victims in making informed decisions about medical, law enforcement, and court processes and will act as a liaison between the victim and other social service agencies. Advocates provide supportive counseling that includes safety planning, education on the dynamics of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, assistance in establishing an Action Plan and setting personal goals, and providing information and referrals.
Interested in becoming a peer educator with Students for Violence Prevention?
Sexual violence can include sexual actions and words that coerce, manipulate, or are forced upon someone with the intent to intimidate, humiliate, dominate, subjugate, or control.
The legal definitions of stalking in Kansas is intentional, malicious, and repeated following or harassment of another person and making a credible threat with the intent to place such person in reasonable fear for such person's safety.
Domestic Violence is the pattern of abusive & coercive behaviors used to gain power & control over the victim.
We hold a 2 credit hour training class every Spring semester. The SVP Advisor and Campus Victim Advocate conducts student training. The trainees are then inducted into the group in the fall semester as members. After you are trained and become a member, you will attend SVP meetings every Monday at 3:00pm. This meeting is also a 1 credit hour class. This class is graded, not pass/fail. SVP has a point system for members when it comes to attendance and involvement in programming, events, and activities. If you are interested in applying to be an SVP Peer Educator, please visit the Campus Activities Center at 109 Overman Student Center or find our application on Gorilla Engage.
