Who We Are
The Student Advocacy Resource Center celebrates diversity, supports the right of all students to pursue success in our academic community, openly respects and cares for everyone, and is committed to a campus free from discrimination and unwelcome physical, sexual, emotional or social coercion. It is our goal that every interaction and every communication be respectful, considerate, professional, and supportive.
If you have experienced sexual assault, relationship violence, bullying, intimidation, or discrimination, SARC is here to help you. Our services are comprehensive and we actively listen, believe in, assist and support our clients. Based upon your decisions and choices, we also provide referrals, connections and advocacy within the justice, medical, and social service systems. Our work is personal for you and your circumstances. All our services are confidential and free.
