Violence Intervention and Prevention Center
What is Violence?
The VIP Center defines violence as any action that has the primary motivation of asserting power, control, or intimidation over another person. This includes threats, stalking, sexual assault, sexual harassment, bullying, and partner violence, including verbal, emotional, and physical abuse.
We are the coordinating office for advocacy, education, and prevention in the areas of:
∑ Intimate partner violence
∑ Sexual assault
What do we do?
Advocacy: We provide support to individuals who have experienced violence, either directly or indirectly through a friend or loved one. We provide information and access to campus and community resources and assist individuals in exploring options and making decisions.
Education: We provide trainings and resources on intimate partner violence, sexual assault, stalking/harassment, and bullying/cyberbullying. Trainings are available for student groups, classes, administrators, and faculty.
Prevention: We are implementing a coordinated, campus-wide effort to help reduce violence by engaging bystanders and promoting positive, proactive behaviors. Through these actions we will see a reduction in violence.
Creighton University Commitment
The Creighton University community is based on a Catholic, Jesuit tradition and is committed to supporting the intrinsic value of each human being. This commitment includes:
Respect and promote the dignity of all persons.
Consistent with this principle is growing in understanding of different cultures and groups, resolving conflicts fairly, appreciating peoplesí differences, and seeking truths and values essential to human life and community. This principle challenges you to refrain from actions that threaten or discourage the freedom, personal safety, and respect that all individuals deserve. Inconsistent with this principle are actions that compromise or demean the intrinsic worth of individuals or groups. All forms of racism, sexism, pornography, lewd behavior, harassment, intimidation, taunting, insult, physical harm, and discrimination are inconsistent with this principle.
