Enough is Enough: Stem Societal Violence

Enough is Enough is an annual anti-violence program initiated by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) in response to incidents that occurred at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University.  Each year, during the first full week of April, campuses across the country forge paths designed to create a new paradigm for peace and safety on campuses by addressing societal violence and seeking peaceful solutions.
