The Interpersonal Violence Intervention Program (iVIP) mission is to foster a greater college community that is both aware of, and equipped to respond to Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Stalking, and Sexual Assault. iVIP provides continued education on prevention programming at Trocaire, and in the surrounding community! 


The Trocaire College Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) is comprised of students, faculty, staff, and community partners. The individuals on the CCRT all bring a diverse set of skills to Trocaire, in order to ensure that the program is inclusive, and equally represents all of the Trocaire Community.

To Join the CCRT please contact the iVIP office.


Interpersonal violence can happen to anyone regardless of their age, race, gender, religious affiliation or socioeconomic status. The good news is that we can all work together to put an end to interpersonal violence at Trocaire College and in our community. All students are required to complete the Interpersonal Violence Intervention (iVIP) course found on Moodle. Students who do not complete the course will have a hold placed on their student account that will restrict them from being able to register for courses the subsequent semester.
