Violence Prevention and Response

About Violence Prevention and Response

Violence Prevention and Response (VPR) works with students, employees, and community partners to lead comprehensive and innovative prevention strategies, foster a culture of courageous community responsibility and activism, and offer trauma-informed confidential support to shape an Emerson free of power-based interpersonal violence including sexual assault and harassment, stalking, and threats and abusive relationships and bullying.

Connect with Support Now

When someone has been impacted by violence or harm, such as sexual assault, harassment, stalking, threats, abusive relationships, and bullying, they may find it helpful to talk with someone about their feelings, rights, and options. No one deserves to be harmed and there are many supportive people at Emerson College and in the community who are here to help.

Get Involved

We believe each and every one of us can make a difference in shaping the campus culture that we all want to be a part of, so there are a number of ways for students, staff and faculty to get involved with Violence Prevention and Response.
