Interpersonal Violence is a term often used to describe sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking. These forms of interpersonal violence are the most common forms of violence that college students experience. Interpersonal Violence can be perpetrated by a partner, acquaintance, ex-partner, or a stranger. In most cases of interpersonal violence, the perpetrator is known to the victim or survivor.
