The Violence Prevention Center (VPC) is designed to enhance safety and justice for victims of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking on campus. The VPC uses a multidisciplinary approach that involves the entire college community as well as the larger community to address crimes of this nature. Its primary objective is to institutionalize college and community-based response protocols that will increase victim safety and services, hold perpetrators accountable, and eliminate the fundamental causes of violence against women at the college.

Programs and Services

The Violence Prevention Center administers the following programs and services that are related to sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking prevention:

Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT)

The CCRT is comprised of students, employees, and community members. The team is charged with developing procedures and programs that will further the prevention and education program, strengthen victim services at the college, and increase accountability of perpetrators. These initiatives include a focus on providing services to underserved populations affected by violence, such as the LGBT community, veterans, students with disabilities, and foreign-born or immigrant students.

Mandatory Prevention and Education Programming

According to a U.S Department of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey, every two and a half minutes somewhere in America someone is sexually assaulted. Though this statistic is overwhelming, Prince George’s Community College realizes that there is something that can be done about it. That something is to educate ourselves. The Violence Prevention Center established a mandatory prevention and education program that uses a multipronged approach to reaching all incoming students. The program is implemented in three stages: pre-orientation, orientation, and post-orientation. As a new student, the program will provide you with the tools needed to prevent sexual assault and similar forms of violence from occurring in our community. Please send an email message to vpc@pgcc.edu for more information on the program.

Community Awareness Programs and Trainings

These activities include men’s programming and comprehensive, culturally-competent bystander intervention programs that trains the entire college community in ways it can assist in reducing violence of this nature at the college.

Peer Health Advocacy and Education Services

Peer health advocates provide peer counseling, crisis intervention, information, and referrals to students who are dealing with health-related issues or have experienced sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and/or stalking.

Title IX

Title IX Investigators

Title IX Investigators report to the Title IX Coordinator, who has primary responsibility for the administration of the institution's Discrimination, Sexual Assault, and Sexual Misconduct policy.

The Investigator assists in resolving complaints of sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and gender-related violence including stalking and intimate partner violence, and protected class discrimination and harassment involving students at the college.

Investigators work closely with the college policies noted above to conduct investigations of complaints filed by students. When a complaint is filed, the Title IX Investigator will conduct a prompt and thorough investigation. The Title IX Investigator acts as a neutral party in the investigation and provides a detailed, unbiased report regarding the findings of the investigation.
