NDAC Values           

We believe all people have the right to live free of violence, discrimination, and the fear of violence. We recognize that intimate partner violence, harassment, discrimination, and hate crimes are not isolated incidents, but rather individual expressions of a cultural attitude that tolerates violence and hate. We understand that these behaviors demonstrate issues of power, control, and inequality; and we believe that the folks targeted by these behaviors are not to be blamed for the violence and discrimination perpetrated against them.

NDAC’s philosophy to address these pervasive social problems is informed by multidisciplinary research and data. We seek to increase awareness of these issues and establish positive community norms. We accomplish our goals through student-led efforts such as educational programming and staff-led training. In these efforts we address that barriers exist for all people. We challenge our community members to consider how they might overcome or work around these barriers to support a community free of discrimination, harassment, and violence.
