At the Oct. 9, 2015, Buechner Breakfast First Friday, Professor Angela Gover announced the creation of the Crime Victimization Research Center.
The center will serve as a resource for public, private and nonprofit agencies who work with crime victims. For example, the CVRC will collaborate with law enforcement agencies, the courts, corrections, victim advocacy groups, community organizations, and other nonprofit and non-governmental entities and universities to provide innovative research and analysis on contemporary victimization issues.
The CVRC will also help prevent crime victimization by advancing knowledge about prevention research and fostering collaborations among advocates, practitioners, policy makers, and researchers.
The CVRC also supports the development of an undergraduate minor, graduate concentration and certificate in victimology and victim studies.
The center will be housed in the Buechner Institute for Governance, the applied research arm of the School of Public Affairs.
