Violence Prevention Education

The Violence Prevention Education Group and Office of Student Life & Engagement partner together to offer various preventative and educational sessions and activities each year for students, staff, faculty, and the Laurel Ridge community.

Sign up for our Self-Defense classes, hosted by the Laurel Ridge Police Department!

The Violence Prevention Education Team and Laurel Ridge Police Department have developed an in-house Self-Defense Class that will be available to all students, staff, faculty, and administration. The course is 3 hours (1.5 hours for in-class instruction and 1.5 hours for physical demonstration and practical exercises). Each session is limited to 10 people, first come, first serve. 

*Please note: You should wear comfortable clothing to this session as you will be actively participating in physical exercises.

If you have any questions about the class, please email the Violence Prevention Education Team chair at [email protected]
