Tarleton Counseling Services Renews Victims Assistance Grant

The Tarleton Counseling Center has received the second continuation since 2017 of the Victims Assistance Grant — $221,520 for resources for students who have experienced violence. The grant, awarded by the Governor’s Office through the federal Campus Victim Assistance Program, provides campus-specific victim aid. The grant provides salaries for a full-time advocate and three full-time counselors trained to assist survivors of physical and sexual abuse, intimate partner abuse, domestic violence, stalking and harassment, and to work with students who come to Tarleton from the foster care system. The grant also provides prevention training for students, staff and Tarleton police officers.
