During a time when there seems to be violence everywhere around us, nonprofit programs are focused on remedies and methods of prevention. This training event and others have been sponsored by Tulane Mary Amelia Women's Center for many years and supported by the Healthy Start EPIC Center.
Rachel Blume, a student in the Tulane School of Liberal Arts, was recently awarded the Campus UnSung Hero award from the One Love Foundation for her work leading campus programming around healthy relationships and relationship violence.
The spring, Tulane launched its new Violence Prevention Institute to bring together experts from across campus. Researchers with the Violence Prevention Institute are collaborating across disciplines to understand the causes of violence and how we can best prevent various forms of violence from child maltreatment to intimate partner violence and sexual assault.
