Creating a Healthy State

at Mississippi State University

Interpersonal Violence Prevention

Violence Prevention promotes healthy consensual relationships, educates students about their role in the prevention of violence, and challenges cultural attitudes and beliefs that contribute to violence. Interpersonal Violence refers to sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking, which are forms of violence that college students experience. We want each student to stand up for others through bystander intervention to keep their fellow Bulldogs safe.


Rock Out the Red Zone

This event students and provides resources for sexually assault services.

 

Take Back the Night

This incredible night of commitment empowers and supports survivors to spread a message of justice that everyone deserves the right to live their lives without fear for their safety while out at night or any time of the day.

 

Walk A Mile in Her Shoes

This is an opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community by walking a mile in women’s high-heeled shoes to learn about the serious causes, effects and remediations to men's sexualized violence against women.

 

Take the Pledge

This pledge campaign brings the community together to never commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against any gender.

 

The Clothesline Project

This artistic display provides an opportunity for increased awareness of violence affecting our community. With over 3,000 shirts in the collection, each shirt represents a different form of violence. Students, staff, faculty, and community members are encouraged to participate and raise awareness for our campus community.

 

Step Up State (Bystander Intervention)

This bystander intervention program provides the campus community with resources and training to increase efforts to help our fellow bulldogs.
