Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children

The Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children (CREVAWC) was founded in 1992 as a collaborative venture between Western University, Fanshawe College and the London Coordinating Committee to End Women Abuse (a large organization comprised of violence against women service providers).The Centre was established in response to a federal study on the problem of violence against women, triggered by the 1989 murder of 14 women at École Polytechnique in Montreal.

CREVAWC joined the Faculty of Education at the University of Western Ontario in 2001.
