Campus Violence Prevention Program
The goals of the UC Davis Campus Violence Prevention Program (CVPP) are to reduce the incidence of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and bias related incidents in the campus community and at the UC Davis Medical Center by increasing the knowledge and awareness of students, staff and faculty about such offenses; to provide crisis intervention, advocacy, support, counseling and referrals to victims of such offenses, their families and friends; to service as a resource for information regarding sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and bias related crime; and to collaborate with other campus units and community agencies to provide a safer campus community and a concerted integrated effort.
The Program's primary mission is to eliminate all forms of violence and in the interim, to ensure that comprehensive and appropriate support services are available for survivors. The Violence Prevention Program provides confidential and supportive responses to victims and offers one on one advocacy with initial medical evaluation, legal and police procedures, and academic and housing issues. Confidential crisis intervention, problem-solving and advocacy is also available to recent survivors and to those working to recover from past incidents, as well as short-term intervention and support being available for friends, family, housemates and co-workers. With the overall purpose of providing for a comprehensive model program of support, education, training and outreach.

Programs include Asian Pacific Culture Week, Black Family Week, La Raza Cultural Days and Native American Culture Days and Powwow. Everyone is invited to share in these programs featuring speakers, workshops, films, entertainment and family events.

All students are invited to participate and no prior dance experience is required.

Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS)
Services for International Students and Scholars
Services for International Students and Scholars assists international students, faculty and researchers in gaining and maintaining an appropriate immigration status while at UC Davis. SISS provides orientation and other information and assistance as part of its mission to build a campus community that is fully inclusive of international students and scholars.
All new and transfer international students must attend a special orientation program held just before each quarter begins. The orientation helps new students with immigration regulations and finding campus services and community resources, and is a vital addition to campus and departmental orientation programs. Orientation for new J-1 international scholars is held every two weeks. Students and scholars should report to SISS as soon as possible after arriving in Davis.
Estimated Costs for 2012-2013
International students are responsible for all of their expenses while studying at UC Davis. The expenses include Nonresident Supplemental Tuition, Tuition, room and board and a modest amount for personal expenses. For the 2012-2013 calendar year (12 months), we estimate the cost will be $52,000 for undergraduates, and $52,500 for graduate students. Because the exact cost for tuition and fees is not determined until just before the beginning of the academic year, these are only preliminary figures. This minimum allowance may be increased without advance notice.
