VIU engages in comprehensive and integrated programming, strategies, and campaigns which are intended to reduce, eliminate, and prevent Prohibited Conduct. The programming, strategies, and campaigns are inclusive of diverse communities and identities, sustainable, culturally relevant, responsive to community needs, and are informed by research.
The programming, strategies, and campaigns consider risk and protective factors as they can occur on the individual, community, relationship, and institutional levels. Because of this, VIU encourages bystander intervention and risk reduction. Information on bystander intervention and risk reduction is provided on this page.
