The Support, Advocacy, & Violence Prevention (SAVP) Office at Vassar College aims to prevent and respond to sexual assault, relationship abuse, 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 experienced sexual assault, rape, relationship abuse, and/or stalking, it is not your fault and you are not alone. We are here to help.
If you are concerned about your own or someone else's safety, call 911 or Vassar Safety & Security at (845) 437-7333. If you are safe and are looking for information about on/off campus resources or reporting options, you can reach a Vassar Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) Advocate by calling (845) 437-7333 and asking for SART. SART Advocates are trained faculty/staff/administrators who are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can provide you with information about the resources available to support you.
You may also contact staff in the SAVP Office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for support, advocacy, and more information about your options. SART Advocates and SAVP staff are private resources on campus. For more information see Responsible, Private, or Confidential.
