About the Violence Prevent Center

The Green River College Violence Prevention Center (VPC) implements campus-wide strategies to prevent interpersonal violence, promote wellness, and provide support to all members of the campus community that have experienced stalking, harassment, sexual assault and relationship violence.

The VPC holds annual awareness events, provides bystander intervention training, and connects anyone on campus that has experienced violence to resources and support both on and off campus.
