Georgia State University Funds an Interpersonal Violence Initiative
In the third year of its Next Generation Program, Georgia State University identified interpersonal violence as an interdisciplinary area in which it seeks to become an internationally recognized resource and authority. As a result of this Interpersonal Violence Initiative, the Center for Research on Interpersonal Violence will recruit three faculty at the Advanced Assistant or early Associate Professor level who are distinguished by their transdisciplinary focus and ability to study interpersonal violence and intersecting health problems.

As a result of this initiative, GSU intends for the Center for Research on Interpersonal Violence to become an internationally recognized leader of transdisciplinary scholarship on interpersonal violence that aims to (1) understand the causes and consequences of interpersonal violence, (2) emphasize the development, refinement, and evaluation of interventions to reduce or prevent the perpetration of interpersonal violence and address the impact of victimization, and (3) inform public policy.
