Mission & Vision
End Rape on Campus (EROC) works to end campus sexual violence through direct support for survivors and their communities; prevention through education; and policy reform at the campus, local, state, and federal levels.
EROC is the only national organization that combines these three approaches specifically to end campus sexual violence:
EROC directly assists student survivors and their communities. Our work includes, but is not limited to, establishing support networks, filing federal complaints, and mentoring student activists. We help students organize for change on campus as well as work with administrators to ensure best practices are in place and enforced. Though we are not mental health or legal professionals, we are able to connect survivors to our growing network of mental health professionals and lawyers as needed.
EROC trains and develops resources for staff, students, groups, and individuals on how to prevent sexual assault and support survivors, as well as the rights of students under applicable federal and state laws. EROC also provides media trainings to journalists on how to appropriately cover topics related to sexual violence.
EROC advocates for fair and equitable sexual assault and interpersonal violence policies and legislation on the campus, local, state, and federal levels. We support reforms that ensure holistic support for all survivors, statewide affirmative consent standards, and federal accountability for Title IX, Title II, and Clery Act enforcement.
EROC envisions a world in which each individual has an educational experience free from violence, and until then, that all survivors are believed, trusted, and supported.
