January is National Stalking Awareness Month
Stalking is a pattern of behavior directed at a specific person that causes fear or emotional distress. The majority of campus victims are stalked by someone they know, and most stalkers are fellow students. In addition to serious and long-lasting emotional and psychological harm, stalking can involve severe — even lethal — violence. Campuses that understand the nature and dynamics of stalking, the impact of stalking on victims, and the jurisdictional complexities of stalking cases can support victims and hold stalkers accountable.
It takes all of us – victims/survivors and their friends and family, advocacy and support services, and legal systems – to better recognize and respond to stalking, and this month, UTHSC Office of Access and Compliance invites you to join our efforts to spread awareness about stalking and to KNOW IT, NAME IT, and STOP IT.
