Survivor Support Network Training:
Become an Effective Ally to Survivors of Gender Violence 

SSNHave you encountered students or co-workers whose academic or work performance was impacted by a history of victimization? Become an ally to survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and child sexual abuse by training as a member of U.Va.’s Survivor Support Network. During the course of this 2-1/2 hour program, you will learn effective strategies to support your students and colleagues, learn about local resources and become part of an on-Grounds network that is designed to make visible the dedicated support for victims that exists at the University. We will provide you with the resources and ongoing support you will need.

Individual faculty and staff members can find scheduled training sessions to join on our calendar. Departments, units or schools interested in scheduling a session for a larger group should contact Claire Kaplan at 982-2774 or email cnk2r@virginia.edu.
