The know violence committee envisions a world where individuals and communities are empowered to create a non-violent reality of equality and engage in healthy relationships where survivors are supported, perpetrators are held accountable, and bystanders confidently intervene.

The mission of know violence is to prevent interpersonal violence and shift community norms for the SUNY Oneonta campus community by implementing evidence-based education and outreach strategies for violence prevention and connecting community members to additional resources.

SUNY recently adopted a uniform sexual assault policy which included a Sexual Violence Victim/Survivor Bill of Rights.

Looking for the PAIRS website?

In May 2013 the PAIRS committee renamed itself as the know violence committee. It is hoped that this new name better conveys the goal of prevention education which integrates current research for the SUNY Oneonta campus. It is hoped that the transition in names will be short.

Who is know violence?

The know violence committee provides programming and education to the campus community regarding the issues of sexual assault and relationship violence. The Committee is made up of faculty, staff and students and meets once a month.

If you are interested in joining the know violence committee please contact Rebecca Harrington. Email, call (432-3540) or stop by room 110 in the CHW Center

But I'm a Guy

A common myth in our society is that men cannot be the victims of sexual assault or relationship violence. This is not true, men are victims too. All of the services on and off campus are available to men too.
