UCIV is a student-initiated, volunteer program that was established to facilitate public safety and well-being in Isla Vista. UCIV student leaders and volunteers interact with Isla Vista residents and visitors to provide them with knowledge and resources to make informed decisions about their own and the community’s well-being. They act as mediators to prevent conflict and promote peaceful interactions between public safety officers and Isla Vista residents and visitors to the community. When needed, the volunteers connect people with medical services or other public safety officials. UCIV volunteers are nonjudgmental and help to promote culture change in Isla Vista through peer-to-peer accountability. The UCIV program complements the efforts of UC Santa Barbara and other organizations and builds upon these efforts to provide and promote opportunities for residents to improve safety and the quality of life in their community.
While this program has been a part of UCSB we have seen:
A 20% reduction in overall crime in Isla Vista (in conjunction with other programs)
Record lows for arrests and citations during Deltopia
An increased and more transparent communication between local law enforcement and the community and the fostering of a community policing model
By raising $7,500 we will be able to fund our program and continue these trends towards a safer Isla Vista.
Donate today and help the UCIV program develop a safe and close knit community for all of UCSB and Isla Vista.
