The purpose of VRAA is to provide an organization for WVU students to learn valuable and usable real world skills through professional development opportunities, experiential learning, and exposure to grant funded research projects studying violent crime. Our organization is open to both undergraduate students and graduate students in any major. We provide resources and graduate student mentorship to help undergraduate students complete an original research project of their choosing and present their research at regional and national conferences, fully or partially funded. Additionally, VRAA holds 2 to 4 awareness events throughout the academic year calling attention to various violence based social problems that effect the WVU and Morgantown communities.
