Violence Prevention & Educational Outreach Program (VPEO)

The Simmons VPEO works to educate and spread awareness around forms of gender-based violence, prevent the occurrence of violence on our campus or impacting our community, familiarizing community members with Simmons policy and protocol to address and respond to these issues if they arise, and to support and advocate for student survivors of violence. We conduct weekly programming and hold weekly office hours for peer support. For more information, contact [email protected].
