A student group dedicated to sexual assault and domestic violence prevention has been honored with a national award for a stalking awareness program it presented on campus.
PSU’s Students for Violence Prevention (SVP) received the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) Outstanding Prevention Program award for “P.S. I Love You: Stalking Awareness Evening,” which it presented on campus last January. The group received the award at the NASPA General Assembly, which was held in November in Reston, Va.
SVP is one part of an award-winning and longstanding peer health education effort on the PSU campus through the Office of Student Prevention and Wellness that includes Gorillas in Your Midst. Throughout the year, the student groups present programs that focus on responsible decision making, harm reduction, social norming, environmental management and peer health education.
