Interpersonal violence refers to threats or acts of physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, verbal, financial, technological, legal and medical abuse. These acts can be committed by any person with the purpose of having control and/or causing significant harm. Interpersonal violence is always motivated by power and control.
Interpersonal violence is prevalent in every community and affects all people regardless of their protected class(es). The resources offered within this LibGuide illustrate how rates of victimization vary or increase based on protected class and other individual, social, and structural factors. For information on federal protected classes and non-discrimination policies, see Texas A&M System Policy 08.01 Civil Rights Protection and Compliance. 


Student Life provides educational programs that promote the recognition and sustainability of healthy relationships, active communication around consent and boundaries, effective strategies for intervening when witnessing violence or abuse, and knowledge of resources and the ways they support those who have experienced harm. These programs include the Green Dot Bystander Intervention and STAND Up trauma-informed care initiatives. It also includes the observance of:

Relationship Abuse Prevention & Awareness Month (October)

    • National Human Trafficking & Slavery Awareness Month (January)

    • National Stalking Prevention Month (January)

    • Dating Abuse Prevention Month (February)
