The Sexual Assault and Violence Prevention (SAVP) Office 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 theywould like to report the incident.
If you have been assaulted, or know someone who has, you may contact the Vassar Sexual Assault Response Team (SART), trained faculty/staff/administrators who are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide you with information about the resources available to support you. They can be reached at 845-437-7333.
During business hours, you may contact staff in the Sexual Assault and Violence Prevention Office by emailing email@example.com for support, advocacy, and more information about your options.
Both SART and the SAVP Director are private resources. For more information see Resources.
