SAVP Committee

The Support, Advocacy, & Violence Prevention (SAVP) Committee at Vassar College is dedicated to addressing and promoting a cultural shift in the norms associated with sexual assault, relationship abuse, and stalking on campus by:

  • Fostering dialogue among campus departments;
  • Maintaining a coordinated, victim-centered campus response;
  • Raising awareness through collaborative events and resources;
  • Educating students, faculty, and staff on how to prevent sexual assault, relationship abuse, and stalking through ongoing trainings on bystander intervention, consent, and social norms; and
  • Informing students, faculty, and staff of Vassar’s policies and procedures related to sexual assault, relationship abuse, and stalking.
