Student Staff

The McCluskey Center for Violence Prevention at the University of Utah will serve as a national leader in the effort to eliminate relationship and sexual violence (RSV) among U.S. college students. Using a power-conscious, intersectional framework, the center seeks to bridge the gap between research and practice by bringing together the expertise of researchers, prevention educators, and students to execute a comprehensive research and practice agenda focused on the prevention of relationship and sexual violence. The work of the center will intentionally focus on students from historically minoritized backgrounds, including students of color, queer and trans students and students with disabilities.

The MCVP seeks to hire critically conscious students to assist in developing programming and managing the day-to-day operations of the MCVP. Students engaged in the work of the MCVP must possess an understanding of power, intersectionality, and oppression and a willingness to continue learning about these important topics. Additionally, staff must understand and commit to a primary prevention approach to addressing violence. Previous experience addressing issue of relationship and sexual violence is not required; however, a deep commitment to self-awareness and learning, and understanding power, privilege, and oppression is required.

• Engaging in on-going professional development, including reading and attending online seminars, related to dating and sexual violence among college students
• Serving as an ambassador for the MCVP and correcting misperceptions about the MCVP’s role and function on campus
