The Sexual Assault and Violence Prevention (SAVP) Program at Vassar College aims to prevent and respond to sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking, and sexual harassment through prevention education, collaboration, outreach, and advocacy. SAVP is committed to taking a survivor-centered approach, which means that if a student is victimized, they are given the options and make the decisions about what services they would like to access and whether or not they would like to report the incident. 

If you have been assaulted, or know someone who has, the Vassar Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) are trained faculty/staff/administrators that are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide you with information about the resources that may be able to support you. They can be reached at 845-437-7333.
