The University of Baltimore is pleased to announce the new Roper Victim Assistance Academy of Maryland (RVAAM). The RVAAM is a 40-hour, academically-based education and training program that covers a broad array of topics in victimology, victim’s rights and services, and victim advocacy throughout the criminal and juvenile processes. The RVAAM offers a rare opportunity to live, work, study, and interact with victim-service providers from all areas of advocacy. While it is assumed that students have had previous training in their area of specialization, this course provides a fundamental overview of the entire field of advocacy including victimology, victim rights, and victim assistance for residents in Maryland.
