Prevention, Advocacy, and Wellness Services (PAWS) strives to create a campus culture in which members make informed and responsible decisions regarding their personal and community health. PAWS works to reduce the incidence, prevalence, and severity of substance abuse and interpersonal violence related problems among Fredonia students.

This comprehensive program coordinates initiatives; facilitates collaboration; provides training, advocacy, and intervention services; and educational opportunities in the following areas:

  • Alcohol and other drugs
  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Relationship issues including dating and domestic violence
  • Stalking and harassment
  • Sexual health

PAWS (formerly CEASE) provides advocacy and support for Fredonia students that are survivors of interpersonal violence (rape, sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking, and harassment). We can answer questions, be someone to talk to, offer emotional support, and provide referrals. You can make an appointment with the PAWS office at the Counseling Center, in person at LoGrasso Hall, calling the office at (716) 673-3424, or emailing the PAWS coordinator at Julie.Bezek@fredonia.edu.
