Expanding the Violence Prevention Office
Sexual assault is a growing discussion on campus throughout the country, and UM has made great improvements to the services it offers to students impacted by sexual assault, but there is so much more to be done. Demand for services will only increase.
How do we get there?
The VPO has essentially “maxed out” on the services it can offer to increase student quality of life. Unless more financial resources are allocated to hire more VPO staff members, the office will not be able to meet the needs of UM students. Each year, more students seek services from the VPO. Soon the office will have to choose between decreasing the quality of service provided and denying services to some students.
