The Research Center on Violence at WVU will earn grants to work on government and nonprofit projects, host colloquia with leading speakers on violence, reach out and interact with West Virginia and national communities, and play a key role in attracting Ph.D. students from across the world.  The Research Center has plans to expand to become more interdisciplinary, and will include members from public health, medicine, and psychology.

The Center’s staff members will research some of the biggest issues affecting communities across the nation, including rape, robbery, and crimes against the environment. With the help of government grants and nonprofit projects, experts will try to learn everything they can about violence in order to assist with prevention, awareness, and education efforts.
