There are a wealth of opportunities to learn more and get involved:
Take a class
The University of Iowa offers classes on numerous topics that intersect with studies on sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. Earn credit and become more knowledgeable at the same time. Here are current course offerings.
In addition to for-credit classes, students and employees can take free classes through the Department of Public Safety to increase both self-confidence and preparedness for assault and other crimes.
The local victim advocacy agencies all depend on volunteers to provide on-call services to victims, prevention education activities, and/or other projects. Use the provided hyperlinks to learn about opportunities to get involved at RVAP and DVIP.
Encourage your student organization or service club to direct a philanthropic project toward a victim service organization.
Engage in research or scholarship
If you're a faculty member or student with interest or expertise on a topic related to sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, or stalking, research opportunities abound. Together, we can facilitate collaboration across campus and within the community to improve system response, promote evidence-based prevention strategies and recommend effective training.
