About the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) Grant

OVW logoThe U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) grant was funded to implement intervention and education programs for incoming students and University faculty, staff and campus safety units. Awarded for three years, the grant will focus on reducing domestic and dating violence, sexual assault and stalking on college campuses as well as encourage adoption of comprehensive and coordinated responses to these crimes. Additionally, outreach programming, training and resources will be provided for victim safety, offender accountability and prevention.

The Counseling Center at Shaw University was awarded the Resources, Intervention, Services and Education (RISE) grant as part of a consortium with Bennett College and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T).  Shaw University strives to make our campus survivor centered.

Mission Statement

The mission of OVW's Campus Program is to develop effective culturally-relevant campus-based programming that builds upon strong campus and community partnerships with the goals of strengthening services for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking and promoting multifaceted prevention strategies within the campus community.
