Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis Debuts a New Academic Center

Harris-Stowe State University, the historically Black educational institution in St. Louis, has announced the opening of the Center for Non-Violence and Abuse Prevention. The new center will operate under the auspices of the Division of Student Affairs at the university. The center will serve as a platform for education and will provide resources that address different forms of abuse and violence.

warmackDwaun Warmack, president of Harris-Stowe State University, said that “as Harris-Stowe continues to press forward as an intellectual think tank in the St. Louis community, I feel it is imperative we establish centers such as the Center for Non-Violence and Abuse Prevention to address major issues that our society faces. Those who have been a victim of abuse or violence are many times left feeling helpless. Therefore, we must work together to fight these stigmas and educate and empower through dialogue and other resources.”

Dr. Warmack, who became president of the university last July, holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi. He earned an educational doctorate from Union University in Jackson, Tennessee.
