New Coalition Formed
Maryville University recently joined the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence and launched the Maryville Coalition to End Interpersonal Violence.

“Over the years, many Maryville faculty, staff and students have been working alone, together and with community partners toward ending interpersonal violence,” said Carrie Ellis-Kalton, PhD, director of social sciences and assistant professor psychology. “The Coalition seeks to recognize and formalize these efforts and by doing so connect, support, collaborate and hopefully yield greater change.”

Coalition partners include faculty, staff and students, M*PWR (Maryville Promoting Women’s Rights), Safe Connections, Kathy J. Weiman Shelter, YWCA Sexual Assault Response Team, Lydia’s House, The Women’s Safe House, St. Louis Women’s Chorale, RAVEN, Center for Women in Transition, ALIVE and the St. Louis Family Justice Center.
