Mission and Goals

Jags Stop Violence LogoMission 

The Jags Stop Violence Committee is dedicated to year-round programming to prevent violence and self-harm in the UHV campus community. Jags Stop Violence supports the University’s commitment to be a campus free from discrimination and seeks to educate students on issues of violence and self-harm to support public health and safe communities. 


The Jags Stop Violence Committee will focus on efforts to reach the following goals: 

  • Identify areas of need for anti-violence initiatives: Based on trends and community requests, the Jags Stop Violence Committee will review opportunities for new programs to address issues of violence. The committee will consider national and local trends, requests from campus constituents, and resources available through community partners. 
  • Create dynamic educational campaigns: Based on a yearly calendar of events, the Jags Stop Violence Committee encourages campus groups to collaborate and maximize resources for successful anti-violence campaigns and events. With advance notice and committee approval, Jags Stop Violence can assist with the early phases of program design through the culmination of hosting the event. 
  • Reach community members with essential services: The Jags Stop Violence Committee will advise campus groups so that campus resources include relevant information about trends, on-campus services, and public service providers. The committee will focus on both in-person and online resources for students and employees to address violence and self-harm. 
  • Offer training based on recent data & best practices: On request, the Jags Stop Violence Committee can provide campus groups with targeted training. Training may be directed towards academic classes, student organizations, or employee training.
