Get VIA Trained
The Violence Intervention Assistant (VIA) training is a 4 hour extended training that equips students with an understanding of the prevalence of sexual and relationship violence at the University of Maryland, the foundations of power-based violence, and how to identify red flags. The VIA training also gives attendees the skills needed to intervene effectively to prevent violence and how to communicate prevention practices and resources within their respective spheres of influence.
Converse with CARE
CARE in Conversation is a monthly lunch-time gathering for students and CARE staff to be in community with each other while engaging in student-driven conversation on issues related to power based violence. Through the monthly program, students have a consistent opportunity to connect with CARE and other interested students to shape power-based violence prevention dialogue on our campus.
Students can drop in and out of the 2 hour program as their schedule allows; previous attendance is not necessary. Light refreshments will be provided.
