The college is working in partnership with the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office, Wilmington University, Georgian Court University and the Center for Family Services’ SERV program for the events, scheduled for Oct. 24 at the Cumberland campus, 3322 College Drive.

The day will begin with a Domestic Violence Symposium from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Luciano Conference Center with a panel discussion, breakout sessions on relevant topics and a lunch presentation by the Prosecutor’s Office.

“STAND OUT Against Domestic Violence” takes place at 2:15 p.m. on the patio outside the Student Center. Speakers will include county Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae, representatives from SERV and those remembering victims lost to domestic violence.
