Intimate Partner Violence on NC Campuses

Intimate partner violence (IPV) exists on North Carolina college and university campuses, but so do the resources needed to adequately respond to it.

About one-in-three women and one-in-four men experience some kind of intimate partner violence during their lifetime. People ages 16 to 24, especially those who are female-identified, are at the highest risk for experiencing IPV victimization.

There are many resources on campuses across North Carolina, though, that educate, prevent, protect, and advocate for victims of this pervasive problem. Increasing student and staff awareness of these resources can help reduce the impact of IPV, and help those who have survived it.
