Belles Against Violence Office


The Belles Against Violence Office (BAVO), rooted in the Catholic Church’s faith and social teaching, cultivates a culture free from violence through education, training, support, and advocacy.  BAVO engages the Saint Mary’s College community to prevent and respond to sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.


We provide:

  • advocacy services
  • education and training
  • confidential support

The coordinator of BAVO, Liz Coulston, is a confidential resource on campus. She is not mandated to report to the college or the police.
