Officials laud ECU initiatives to end violence

Ada —  

Making strides in hopes of diminishing violence against women has been a supreme collaboration by several entities within the East Central University community, across the state of Oklahoma, and throughout the nation.

Those successful efforts were highlighted as representatives of groups who have worked against domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, came together to meet with two highly-esteemed and distinguished guests in Bea Hanson, Director of the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence against Women, and Lorraine Edmo, U.S. Department of Justice Deputy Director of Tribal Programs.

Both made a brief but informative visit to the ECU campus earlier this month. ECU had the opportunity to demonstrate these strong partnerships, showcase progress and share success stories.

Among those in attendance at the meeting were ECU President John Hargrave, Regent Connie Reilly, recently retired Regent Belva Howard, Dr. Gerald Forbes, Vice-President of Student Development; Dr. Katricia Pierson, Assistant Vice-President of Academic Affairs; Dean of Students Boomer Appelman; and two members of CIRCAW’s Peer Educator Program, Nikki Dickerson and Desiree Lyon, each representing the stellar administrative and board involvement and support related to ECU’s efforts and activities in the interpersonal violence prevention field.
