Below is a preliminary list of offices on campus who have provided assistance to students affected by sexual aggression. This is not a comprehensive list, and each situation is different. Please contact SAPA 774-CALL for personalized options, referrals, and advocacy.
It's important to understand that taking a concern to an official doesn't necessarily mean that the dispute will be resolved in your favor.
