The Partner Project
The Partner Project is about people developing relationships built on respect, patience and dignity. Healthy relationships support personal growth and safety which transcends into a life of meaning filled with many opportunities for success. The Partner Project at Molloy College is a collaborative effort to raise awareness about relationship violence through education, research and dialogue.
