EMERGE (Engaging Mentors to Empower Respect and Gender Equality)
EMERGE is a group of trained peer educators (EMERGE Leaders) that serve as resources for fellow students, as well as faculty and staff. EMERGE Leaders go out to the campus community and raise awareness on sexual assault and domestic violence.
The topics of sexual assault and domestic violence are often topics that people know little about. Now more than ever, people need to be knowledgeable of these issues. Knowing information on sexual assault and domestic violence will give the campus community the opportunity to prevent and deal with these issues. EMERGE gives the students on the NCCU campus an opportunity to be able to speak with someone about these tough issues that they can relate with, their peers.
Men Creating Change
This NCCU men’s initiative began as way for the Women’s Center to develop male allies to support our work. Men Can Stop Rape in Washington D.C. was awarded a grant from the US Department of Justice and Health and Human Services, in part, to provide support to form and establish a Men Creating Change chapter at NCCU. Men Creating Change is a group of male students, faculty and staff that act as allies in the movement of interpersonal (sexual and physical) violence. MCC provides education and awareness on how masculinity plays a role in contributing violence against women and how men can engage other men to stand up against violence against women.
