Nationally, October is recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It was established to recognize victims who are affected by relationship violence and connect them to resources.
Our office has decided to re-term the phrase Domestic Violence Awareness Month to Relationship Violence Awareness Month, as we believe the term lends itself to a more inclusive and diverse population that is represented here at CSU. During the month we partner with outside community organizations, and campus partners to bring to awareness to interpersonal violence, and educate on the different ways we can help end it. Our primary focus is on cultivating healthy relationships, and providing students with resources and tools on how to manage and find recourse if they or somebody they know is in an unhealthy relationship.
