January

Stalking is a dangerous crime that affected 6.6 million adults in the United States in one year.  The better we understand the facts about stalking, the more we can do to stop it.

That's why the Stalking Resource Center, National Center for Victims of Crime, and the Office on Violence against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, launched National Stalking Awareness Month in 2004. Every January since then, communities across the country have focused on stalking - holding events, sharing information, and building awareness about the crime.

Southern Connecticut State University has joined these national efforts. Below, you will find information that is part of the Women's Center and Men's Initiative programming for January and Stalking Awareness Month. It is the hope of the Women's Center and Men's Initiative that you will continue to visit this website for updates and that you attend these programs in order to help "know, name, and stop" stalking at Southern Connecticut State University and your communities at large.
