The Campus Advocacy and Prevention Professional Association (CAPPA) is dedicated to providing space for campus-based advocates and prevention specialists to come together to share their expertise, develop best practices, and support each other as professionals in the field. CAPPA is designed for campus-based professionals who work to educate their campuses and colleagues about interpersonal/gender-based violence in all its forms, and those who advocate for and support students who have been affected by dating and domestic violence, sexual assault and harassment, and stalking. CAPPA is open to advocates and prevention professionals who serve any type of institution of higher education of all affiliations. We strive for both professionalism and solidarity within our growing field.
CAPPA envisions campuses free from all forms of interpersonal and gender-based violence, including dating and domestic violence, sexual assault and harassment, and stalking. CAPPA works collaboratively toward creating campuses where advocates and prevention specialists’ expertise is valued and where professionals in this field are empowered to do their work effectively and sustainably until we achieve this vision of ending violence. Our work is rooted in social justice, supporting survivors, and fostering communities that value evidence-based practice, practice-based research, and self-care.
