Project Summary

Prevention is Education. Education is Prevention. The UNI Center for Violence Prevention (CVP) collaborates with and supports Iowa’s PreK-12 school districts, colleges and universities, and community agencies who serve youth and families by providing gender violence and bullying prevention training and programming, implementation strategies, on-going practice opportunities and evaluation services. Prevention strategies are delivered within the context of a multi-level and multi-systemic approach so as to maximize buy-in and support from a broad array of school and community stakeholders. The CVP’s “Community in Motion” Tour demonstrates the CVP's philosophy and approach to cultivating leadership capacity across Iowa and beyond at the grassroots level by working closely with individual champions for change and justice, as well as with established educational and community-based service organizations seeking partnerships and plans decreasing and eliminating all forms of violence and abuse. The CVP is committed to providing affordable and effective comprehensive prevention services and continues to be resourceful in securing funding from both public and private entities. The CVP utilizes the Spectrum of Prevention model as a framework for change and intervention throughout the state of Iowa. This model seeks to support organizations and multiple systems within communities to identify strengths and weakness pertaining to policies and practices, collaboration, networking and partnerships, changing practices and protocol, professional development and training, and building skills and knowledge around primary prevention strategies.
