NYSVAA is an interdisciplinary, academically-based learning experience for crime victim service providers, advocates and allied professionals. NYSVAA originally served to build a foundation in the principles and policies of victims’ rights work and a comprehensive set of skills, knowledge, and resources to meet the short- and long-term needs of crime victims in New York State. NYSVAA started with a grant awarded to NYSCASA, and while NYSCASA currently serves as a member of the NYSVAA Advisory Committee, Buffalo State College is the lead organization for NYSVAA.
