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.

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.
