The objects of the Sheonoroil Foundation are:

  a) To engage in or support research and investigation into the effects of education site violence on the physical and emotional health and welfare of teachers faculty, professional support and other stakeholders in the public education and community college systems, and the corresponding impact upon the ability of individuals to perform their roles in the system and otherwise support the education process;
 
  b) To develop and support appropriate intervention strategies to deal with issues of violence in the public school and community college systems, and
 
  c) To serve as a central repository for the preparation, collection, and distribution of resources on school and campus violence
