Campus Members are colleges and universities in North Carolina that:

  • Work directly or indirectly with victims/survivors and/or prepetrators of IPV
  • Strive to reduce IPV through education, policy, and/or social change
  • Support the mission, vision, and values of NCCADV
  • Do not meet the qualifications of a Domestic Violence Agency Member


All members have access to training, technical assistance, and onsite support. Benefits apply to staff, faculty, and/or students on your campus.

Training: You are able to attend all of our virtual and in-person trainings available, including specific Campus Program trainings. This includes our 3-day in-person Advocates’ Institute and other topics such as Responding to Student Disclosures of IPV, Serving LGBTQ+ Students, and Title IX and Trauma-Informed Responses. Campus Members can also request our on-site campus-specific trainings for your faculty/staff, administration, or student leaders. For a list of trainings available for Campus Members to request, please visit modelcampus.org/trainings.

Technical Assistance: Technical assistance (TA) is collaborative problem solving and resource sharing. Campus Members can receive TA from the campus program and all programs here at NCCADV. Schools that have CCRTs can receive support from the Campus Program through TA or meeting attendance. As a campus member, you also have access to attend monthly virtual meetings with fellow NC colleges to share stories, ideas, and receive feedback and TA.

Onsite support: Campus work is collaborative, face-to-face work. Campus Members often ask NCCADV to visit your campus to assist with implementing a new response strategy, creating a new taskforce, or building community on campus. Campus Members receive onsite support with membership to aid in the TA provided. Sometimes this looks like a half or full day visit with meetings and training on campus.


Beginning September 1, 2024, Campus Membership is $150/year for 4-year institutions and $50/year for community colleges.

Campus Memberships operate on a yearly schedule from September 1 to August 31. Every year, on August 31, Campus Membership expire no matter when you paid for it. Membership dues are not pro-rated.
