  14 paid student staff members providing various programatic and internship opportunities to the department. We were able to provide leadership and developmental training to 35 students affliated with the departnement in August 2017.

  Confidential Advocate has continued to support numerous students on campus and through court proceedings who have experienced intimate partner violence during summer.

  Violence Prevention Program peer educators have been recruited, trained, and are preparing to provide bystander intervention training to campus, beginning with the Univ 100 courses.



  Fraternity & Sorority Life sponsored a summer leadership retreat for about 30 fraternity and sorority presidents at the University of California, Irvine ropes course. Students were able interact with other leaders from the four different councils and also reflect on their own limitations and priorities as a leader.









 Refurbished the LGBTQ Resource Center with new desks, storage, and seating for students, which created more space. Some of the carry over will be used for the department relocation, to make sure the centers are able to purchase furniture and décor.


 For the first time, hired students to assist the centers during summer and begin fall planning. This resulted in confirmed fall semester calendars to share in advance. In addition, hired student to assist with department marketing, which resulted in the fall calendar and department-wide documents to promote centers and events. Also hired a GA in summer to plan fall workshop series.



 Continued staff funding provided during summer for Violence Prevention Coordinator; Confidential Advocate; Adult Reentry & Parenting Programs Coordinator
