The University of Rhode Island is a community of learners in which mutual respect and concern for the safety and well-being of one another is required of all members of the community. When one community member harms another member of the community, the person committing the violence has both committed a crime and a grievous breach of the trust the community has placed in him/her. The University will not tolerate such violation and assault on members of our community. The University will make every effort to encourage members of the University community to report these incidents. The University will provide those victimized by interpersonal violence with comprehensive support and resources to assist in recovery. Prevention programs will be included in new student orientation and provided to students throughout the academic year. Resources and support regarding gender-based violence may be found at the Women’s Center, Counseling Center, Health Services, URI Police, Student Life, and the Office of Housing and Residential Life.
The following pages offer information for those impacted by interpersonal violence, family, friends, and other community members.
