Niagara Joins National Anti-Violence Campaign

March 27, 2013  |  by Michael Freedman

Niagara University will be hosting events April 2-5 in conjunction with “Enough is Enough,” a national campaign focused on stemming violence in society.

The “Enough is Enough” campaign is coordinated across the country by NASPA Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. The campaign grew out of a call to action by Zenobia Lawrence Hikes, vice president of student affairs at Virginia Tech, whose analysis of the 2007 tragedy at that university inspired NASPA to chart a “new paradigm for safety and security on the nation’s campuses.” The “Enough is Enough” Campaign unites administrators, educators and counselors from high schools and colleges, as well as parents and students.

At Niagara, one associated event will take place each day, Tuesday through Friday (the university is closed on Monday, April 1).
