Intimate Partner and Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Every October is devoted to bringing awareness to Intimate Partner and Domestic Violence (IPDVAM). This is achieved through educational programs, workshops, and online campaigns. The intention is to empower our campus community to work towards ending gender based violence. We all deserve to be respected, to be treated with dignity, and a life free of violence.
