Welcome to the Kansas State University Campaign for Nonviolence.

The K-State Campaign for Nonviolence is working in many, varied ways to apply the principles of active nonviolence to problems associated with discrimination, harassment, violence and other abuses of power on our campus and in our community. The overall goal is to promote a community that is safe, respectful and equitable for all citizens. We strongly support and promote the KSU Principles of Community.

Consistent with the view of K-State as a community which is both distinctive and part of a larger community and world, the campus-wide Campaign for Nonviolence (CNV) has been working for since 2000 to address violence and its continuum of precursors in a manner that we believe is unique for a university campus. We are working to reduce violence and change the environment surrounding conflict by learning to practice and teach nonviolence. The K-State CNV is a growing affiliation of women and men from all sectors of our community who share the realization that we can build a safe community and peaceful world only if we begin to examine conflict within the context of whole systems, address the complex causes of violence and understand that "nonviolence begins with you/me."
The CNV, the K-State Women's Center and SAFEZONE are associated in these endeavors

Our main projects each year are the Rally for Nonviolence in the Fall term, the Season for Nonviolence in the Spring term, and assistance with the SAFE ZONE program throughout the year.

If you would like to be involved with the K-State Campaign for Nonviolence please contact us. We want to work with you and your group to develop or select nonviolence training techniques that will promote our overall goal of a safe and equitable campus and community.
