Gender-based violence affects all of us.
And it disproportionately affects individuals who identify as non-heterosexual, having a disability, or as transgender, nonbinary, or genderqueer.
100% of us are in relationships and many of us will experience unhealthy relationships. Over a lifetime:
1 in 3 Women | 1 in 4 Men | 1 in 2 Non-binary people
Will experience an abusive relationship.
One is too many.
We are dedicated to building a culture of care and putting an end to gender-based discrimination and violence. Our goal is for every Gator to have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to develop, maintain, and promote healthy relationships. Learn more about past, present, and future violence prevention efforts by visiting our timeline of efforts.
Learn the 5 Steps
You can help end gender-based discrimination and violence by creating and engaging in healthy, respectful relationships; familiarizing yourself with campus and community resources; and, pledging to never commit or condone any acts of violence.
There are many opportunities for students to get involved on campus and lead the charge to prevent violence. Visit the page below to learn more about these opportunities to get connected and make a difference on campus.
Build Your Knowledge
Building a culture of care and respect requires that we all share the same language and tools. Students and employees have a variety of training courses available to build their prevention skills and knowledge.
