Jags Stop Violence Logo

Multiple campus groups design health and safety events each semester with the help of students, faculty, and staff. The Jags Stop Violence Committee encourages collaboration on anti-violence initiatives throughout the year and across the campus.  

With advance notice and committee approval, Jags Stop Violence can help to:

  • Draft promotional materials. 
  • Publicize events on campus. 
  • Give feedback on new programs and initiatives. 
  • Recruit possible campus partners.  
  • Host specific events.  

The committee can also work with the Victoria community on health and safety projects. Please contact Dr. Michael Wilkinson at (361) 485-4408 if you would like to explore possible event ideas on campus. For a complete listing of upcoming events, visit JagSync. 

While a program can take place any time of the year, please see the calendar below for national campaigns that could support an event. Please note that the level of assistance depends on the timeliness of a request and the resources available.
