Our Vision

A World Free From Relationship Violence and Stalking

Our Mission

To end sexual and relationship violence and stalking through the power of effective practitioner and researcher partnerships.

Our Goal

To improve institutional policy, practice, and capacity for sexual and relationship violence and stalking prevention and response (prevention strategies, survivor support and services, and intervention) through research and evaluation.


Prevention Innovations Research Center at the University of New Hampshire was established in October 2006. Our team is made up of researchers and practitioners who work collaboratively to develop and evaluate:

  1. Prevention strategies
  2. Evidence-based measures to document the problems of sexual and relationship violence and stalking
  3. Comprehensive community tools to effectively address the causes of violence

_________________________________________________________________

Our work is nationally and internationally recognized for its contributions to the prevention of sexual and relationship violence and stalking, and we have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to scholarship, programming, and policy making in the field. Our research and prevention efforts emphasize the importance of using a community and bystander focus while examining the continuum of violence.

Our accomplishments fall into three main categories:

  1. Research
  2. Practice
  3. Collaboration
