Violence Prevention

Overview

We strive to prevent all forms of interpersonal violence at USF by providing students with ongoing education and tools to help keep our communities safe.

You are the most important part of making USF a safer place! That’s why we offer programs and workshops that address topics such as sex-positive consent, healthy relationships, bystander intervention and more. Check out our semester schedule for upcoming events, open to all students. We also require mandatory trainings for incoming students on all of these topics.
