Domestic violence is any violent or controlling behavior by a person towards a spouse or partner.  Although the spouse or partner is the primary target, domestic violence or abuse also affects the children in the household, extended family members, and even friends and co-workers.  If you are a student or college employee who is the victim of domestic violence or abuse and have an ex-parte order or full order of protection, please contact the OTC Director of Safety & Security during normal business hours.  Always keep extra copies of ex-parte orders or full orders of protection with you in case they are needed by law enforcement.

OTC offers free counseling to employees and students who are victims of domestic violence or abuse upon request.  Call 447-6974 to make an appointment.
