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.
The Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC) also welcomes volunteers. Check their website to learn more about ongoing or event-specific opportunities.
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.
