Educational Intervention: A Prescription for Violence Prevention at Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Davis, Wanda M, The Journal of Negro Education
Physical and verbal acts of violence and intolerance have become all too familiar on the nation's college campuses, including historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). This article argues that it is no longer acceptable for HBCUs to offer services and programs that focus solely on the victims of violence. To foster a healthy and safe environment, HBCUs must implement proactive educational interventions that interrupt the cycle of violence on campus and directly address the disruptive behavior of those who perpetrate harm within and outside the HBCU community. A model intervention is described and its components and implications discussed.
