UNC CHARLOTTE VIOLENCE PREVENTION CENTER
Violence is preventable. A public health approach to violence prevention must be multidisciplinary to respond successfully to various violence-related sequelae. The UNC Charlotte Violence Prevention Center (VPC) researches violence prevention approaches using a multidisciplinary social-ecological model (SEM). Aligned with UNC Charlotte’s commitment to urban health issues, the VPC serves not only as a hub for research but also collaborates with academic, public, government partners, and policymakers to identify solutions to violence in our community, nation, and globe. The Center serves as a resource for transformative research, training, and technical assistance for communities, policymakers, and the public.
