mission statement

The Campus Violence Response Center’s (CVRC) mission is to create a single point of access for any UNCG community member who has experienced violence. Our team of confidential staff understands the impact of violence, including sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, sexual or gender-based harassment, and all other forms of campus violence. We provide survivors with affirming, empowering, and confidential services.

The CVRC is dedicated to serving all UNCG community members regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, ability, religion/spirituality, socioeconomic status, cultural identity, immigrant or refugee status, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation. We advocate for the just treatment of victims by providing a non-judgmental and culturally sensitive response.

Confidential employees do not share information without permission from the student, faculty, or staff member seeking services from the Campus Violence Response Center and are not required to make a report to the Title IX office, Dean of Students, or UNCG Police Department.  Confidential employees are only required to share information in certain circumstances including if someone is a high risk for suicide or violence towards others or if there is information of child and/or elder abuse.

As a therapist, I consider it an honor to walk alongside others in their individual journey of healing, providing sacred space for vulnerability, meaning and purpose. I work from an approach grounded in gentleness and ease in addressing suffering in ourselves and the world. In sessions, you will find a non-judgmental environment where you have the freedom to be just as you are. It is in such a space where we can find restoration and be empowered to carry our healing out into the world. My work in trauma recovery began in 2009 and has developed into a specialized focus in complex, developmental trauma, and sexual assault. LGBTQIA+ individuals are welcome as I specialize in supporting through transitions, specific needs related to oppression, family and relationship dynamics. Cultural diversity is an additional specialty that I bring to the therapeutic relationship. My training and experience have provided various therapeutic approaches and I believe in the value of discovering together what is most effective for each individual. Creative expression in the forms of poetry, dance, and painting are tools that I have used along my own healing path now share with others therapeutically both in individual and group settings.

Shelby Malize, M.Ed., LCMHCS (she/her/hers) Assistant Director, Crisis Services & Case Management

Since joining the staff at UNCG in 2016, I have primarily worked with students who have faced extenuating circumstances that have impacted their mental health and academic performance. My roles within the CVRC are to oversee the clinical functions of the center and to collaborate with campus partners to support students who have experienced all forms of violence. My greatest joys at work are meeting with students and connecting them with the best-fit resources and services.

The Title IX Office and the Campus Violence Response Center have been integral partners since the Center’s opening in 2016. The initiative and early work to create the Center came from the Title IX Office’s recognition that formal reporting to the University for an investigation following Sexual Harassment and Sex Discrimination may not be the best option for everyone. The Title IX Office values its partnership with the Campus Violence Response Center and recognizes the distinct role of each department in responding to Sexual Harassment and Sex Discrimination.

Students, faculty, and staff should feel comfortable reporting to the Campus Violence Response Center and discussing the merit of reporting further. The Title IX Office is happy to meet with folks in the Center, talk anonymously on the phone to help make informed decisions about reporting, and assist with supportive measures such as housing, class changes, work adjustments, and more. The Title IX Office is an ideal reporting option for folks considering accountability or investigative options. For those considering reporting directly to the Title IX Office, The Title IX Office will still coordinate with the Campus Violence Response Center to ensure community members have support throughout the reporting process if they decide to report directly to the Title IX Office.
