The Importance of Prevention, Training, and Outreach

Sexual and interpersonal violence are systemic public health problems. The Office of Respect is committed to ending violence against all people by addressing oppression at all levels of the social ecology. In order to address these complex issues, prevention education and outreach must be multi-faceted and collaborative - targeting individual thoughts and beliefs, community and societal standards, and cultural ideals and values.

The Office of Respect has year-round violence prevention programming and trainings available for the Emory community delivered in doses, and designed to identify ways everyone can be part of the solution to ending violence and oppression. Virtual trainings and educational sessions are available during COVID-19.

To get involved with the Office of Respect’s programs and events or to request one of the trainings below or a custom training designed collaboratively with your group or department, please email
