Violence Intervention & Prevention (VIP)

Main content start

Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Program is an organization of representatives from the Stanford Greek Community who are committed to addressing the issues of sexual and relationship violence on our campus.

Fraternity and sorority representatives (aka VIP Chairs) engage with one another within a small cohort of VIP Chairs and gain the skills/training necessary to create a culture of sexual citizenship, affirming the right of every individual to sexual self-determination while promoting care, equity, and accountability among all members of the community. VIP Chairs will learn how to facilitate a wide range of educational programs to cultivate a culture of sexual citizenship for their respective chapter and for the Greek community and Stanford community as a whole. The VIP Program was founded on the belief that students can cultivate change for themselves and their communities in relation to sexual and relationship violence by providing peer to peer education and support. This program is a best practice and national model and is open to any student who is a member of a recognized fraternity or sorority on campus.

The VIP Program is available to any member from any Greek organization on campus to join in Winter 2023. To join, you must attend a 4-hour retreat (date/time: TBA) and enroll in the VIP course (Wednesdays at 1:30-2:50pm). Attendance at the VIP Chair retreat and courses are mandatory to be in the program.

How do you become a VIP Chair?

To become a VIP Chair, enroll in the VIP course, which is open to anyone who is a member of a Greek organization on campus.

For VIP Chairs who are elected and/or selected as part of their organizations' leadership structure: enroll in the course during the first quarter of your term to be affiliated to the VIP program.

What does your Chapter gain from having a VIP Chair?

  • A peer resource who is trained to educate and provide support on topics related to sexual and relationship violence

  • A liaison to the SHARE Education Office and the Fraternity and Sorority Life Office

  • Relationships to fraternity and sorority leaders and chapters who are interested in preventing sexual and relationship violence
