Sexual Assault Response Team

What is SART? 

The Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) provides assistance to survivors of sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence and stalking.  Assistance may include counseling, advocacy, medical care, academic interventions and referrals.  SART members will explain what options and resources are available, and will assist you through whatever steps you decide to take.  When you tell a SART member about the incident, you do not have to use your name, nor the alleged perpetrators’. That is up to you. SART Members will preserve your confidentiality to the greatest extent possible.  We encourage you to formally report, using names, so the incident can be investigated and to prevent further crimes.  But you don’t have to. We would rather have you report the incident, without names, than not at all.  We can’t help you if you don’t come forward.
