The Center for Violence and Injury Prevention (CVIP) promotes healthy young families and healthy young adults by advancing evidence-based violence prevention through education, research, & training activities. 
Launched in August 2009 with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (1R49CE001510-01), the Center is the only one of its kind to be housed in a school of social work.  We partner with an interdisciplinary team of researchers and teachers representing multiple universities, and collaborate with community-based agencies already serving our most vulnerable populations. 
Our butterfly represents transformation and symbolizes the developmental aspect of our mission.  We incorporate the colors most frequently used by organizations addressing:

• child abuse and neglect (blue)
• intimate partner violence (purple)
• sexual violence (teal)
• suicide (yellow)
