About Us

The Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance is part of the Rutgers University-Camden Divison of Student Affairs.  Below is our vision, mission and the principles that guide our work.  
A campus community free from violence.
With student survivors at the center of all that we do, we are committed to addressing and preventing interpersonal violence and helping to empower the Rutgers Camden community to become a safer place to live and learn.
The Office of Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance (VPVA) is a new office within the Division of Student Affairs.  VPVA offers counseling and advocacy services; educational programming; and training, consultation and policy development services to all Rutgers Camden students. VPVA supports student survivors and promotes prosocial bystander behaviors in an effort to encourage student success.
