Care on Campus strives to improve UCF’s ability to identify and support college students who are experiencing violence in their relationships.

Screening for intimate partner violence (IPV) is uncommon and not standardized across university settings and current screening tools and practices in the general healthcare setting do not meet the needs of college students.

Researchers from UCF’s Violence Against Women Cluster partnered with Student Health Services and UCF Victim Services to develop and implement a screening tool to identify past year IPV among college students, as well as help implement strategies for prevention and response.

Students who have appointments at Student Health Services may be asked to participate in this study. What we learn from their answers will help us improve our efforts to assist students who are experiencing abuse in their relationships.

This project was funded by the Elizabeth Morse Genius Foundation.
