PARC was founded out of student activism and strives to continue to be student-centered. In 2013, a group of student activists organized to ask the administration for improvements related to sexual violence in the Brandeis community. One of these requests was the founding of the Brandeis Rape Crisis Center, which was staffed by confidential peer advocates.
In 2018, the Rape Crisis Center and the Office of Prevention Services, responsible for Bystander Intervention trainings, chose to come together under one name: the Prevention, Advocacy & Resource Center (PARC). Within PARC, both the peer advocates and violence prevention educators (formerly Bystander trainers) continue to do their work now with more opportunities for overlap and collaboration.
Below you can read our annual reports from recent years. These reports share some highlights from each year, as well as a broad quantitative overview of PARC's work with the Brandeis community by year.
