The Role of Students and Student Organizations in Campus Violence

Presented by: Jill Casten, Virginia Tech
Presented at: 3rd International CRE Summit
Date of Session: March 27, 2010

Session Description: While administrative and regulatory functions are discussed in higher education literature regarding responses to violence, student engagement in this area is relatively understudied. As an aspect of dissertation research, this workshop will facilitate discussion on the role of students and student organizations in campus violence prevention efforts. The session will provide insights into the informal structures and support networks that prevent and reduce campus violence.
