The violence prevention program offers education and prevention efforts to reduce the numbers of personal power based violence occurring on our campus. This includes sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking. We use the Green Dot Model of bystander intervention to reduce rates and have close partnerships with student counseling, campus police, and other community organizations. We partner with a Morris based non-profit, Someplace Safe to offer advocacy for anyone who has been a victim of these crimes.
The Violence Prevention Program is located in the Wellness Center in Gay Hall and Someplace Safe, the victim advocacy program serving the Morris community holds office hours in Student Counseling.

Reports of sexual misconduct, including anonymous reports, may be submitted 24 hours a day through the University's UReport reporting system. Reports of sexual misconduct made through UReport will be forwarded to the appropriate campus Title IX office. However, reporting or sharing information about sexual misconduct through UReport does not satisfy the obligation of University employees to report incidents of sexual misconduct to the Title IX offices. You can report any situation or University conduct you believe violates an applicable law, regulation or University policy.
Red Flag Campaign
The Red Flag Campaign is a public awareness campaign that addresses dating violence and sexual assault on college campuses. The campaign uses a positive strategy to help promote healthy relationships. That is, the focus is on bystander intervention. It encourages people to "say something" if they see "red flags" or warning signs of abuse, or sexual violence in friend's relationships.
Someplace Safe & Advocacy
Someplace Safe, a community partner with an office in Morris and surrounding communities, offers advocacy services for sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking. Services include 24-hour crisis line, crisis intervention, information, and referrals; advocacy for medical exams and legal proceedings; support groups; training and education, safe lodging; criminal justice monitoring and policy development.
