Providing education, empowerment and support related to violence, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence and stalking.
The Prevention, Advocacy & Resource Center (PARC) is a confidential, student-centered resource serving members of the Brandeis community who have been impacted by violence and those who want to contribute to the anti-violence movement.
PreventionPARC offers lots of different workshops, events, and online resources to understands the roots of violence and learn applicable skills for anti-violence work.
Our prevention team facilitates trainings open to all students, as well as available by request for students, faculty, and staff.
Throughout the year and especially during January (Stalking Awareness Month), April (Sexual Assault Awareness Month), and October (Domestic Violence Awareness Month), we host and co-host events, campaigns, and more.
Confidential advocates are available in a variety of ways to talk about something you've experienced, explore options, discuss concerns about someone you know, and much more. Click here to see a list of just some of the things you can talk to an advocate about.
Peer Advocates are available for drop-ins, online chat, or by appointment to those who have been impacted by violence, as well as those supporting them.
Our two full-time staff members can provide more in-depth, ongoing advocacy. You are welcome to meet with a peer advocate first, then ask to be scheduled with a professional staff person, or you can schedule with a professional staff person directly.
PARC seeks to engage the Brandeis community to normalize anti-violence by providing our own resources and connecting folks to others.
Explore PARC's handouts and recommendations for articles, videos, and other scholarship related to our work.
If you are hosting an event that addresses sensitive or triggering topics, PARC peer advocates can be present to support participants who wish to talk to someone during or after the event.
