The Student Anti-Violence Education (SAVE) Program is focused on empowering TCNJ students to make healthy lifestyle choices and our campus community a safer place. The SAVE Program’s mission is to:

To serve as spokespersons, student mentors, and referral agents for Anti-Violence Initiatives (AVI). Supervised by the Assistant Director of AVI, the SAVE Peer Educators provide evidence-informed programming to empower students with healthy relationship skills and to promote pro-social bystander behavior.

The program and its leaders believe that students can play a uniquely effective role in encouraging their peers to consider and talk honestly about the issues of sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking, while developing responsible habits and attitudes towards these issues, as well as seeking professional advice when necessary.
