Our Mission

Our mission in the SAAFE Office is to be a support system for the individual and to inform and advise them through the process of healing. The SAAFE Office provides advocacy services to individuals of all genders who are survivors of sexual assault. The Assistant Director meets with students at their request and provides them with information about their rights and options that exist in dealing with the assault, and supports them in their decision-making. All of this occurs within the realm of confidentiality.

The SAAFE Office provides referrals to campus and community resources (i.e. counseling, support groups, legal services, etc.). We also provide written resource material to aid in the process of healing.

The SAAFE Office provides facilitative outreach as a means of creating awareness and to aid in the prevention of assault. All student organizations and campus groups may request a variety of programs ranging from informational to interactive workshops on multiple topics.

The Assistant Director also advises the SAAFE Advocates. Advocates are a group of Trained Peer Educators that are confidential resources able to provide education, resources, and support.
