Campus Leadership Program

Since 1998, Futures Without Violence has hosted interns in varying fields: medical, legal, public health and social work. Working with staff members at our offices, interns have benefited from the mentorship of staff while gaining knowledge of strategies to prevent violence against women and children. This year, Futures Without Violence has launched the new Campus Leadership Program to spur creative, student-led action to change university policy, enhance curriculum, raise awareness and shift campus culture around dating violence, domestic violence and the connection to sexual assault, and reproductive coercion.

Twelve graduate-level students from across the country have been chosen as Campus Leaders to improve their college’s awareness and response to violence against women. In July, the Campus Leaders representing different colleges and universities from across the country traveled to San Francisco to meet each other, exchange ideas, learn from Futures staff and develop their plans for the year ahead. We look forward to hearing about their exciting activities and reports “from the field.”
