Director's Welcome

From Charles M. Katz

Welcome to our center. Currently, the Center is engaged in several local, state, and international research projects aimed at reducing violence.

While other institutions may single out for study a particular facet of violence, the Center for Violence Prevention and Community Safety has developed a distinct organizational model recognizing that interpersonal violence has no favorites. Solutions must cut across all boundaries of age, ethnicity, gender, economic status, and locale. That's why prevention solutions developed at the Center address all forms of violence, and research and development efforts are linked with other ASU research centers.
