The Toolkit for Preventing Interpersonal Violence among Students Studying Abroad is designed to increase the capacity of colleges to prevent interpersonal violence among students who participate in study abroad programs. It is organized to correspond with the four stages of the study abroad experience:

  1. Institutional Planning
  2. Pre-Departure
  3. Post-Departure/Immersion
  4. Return/Reintegration

The tools included were created based on findings from an accompanying literature review, which includes results from key informant interviews, surveys, and focus groups; peer-reviewed literature; and best practices for preventing interpersonal violence within the study abroad context.
