Stop Sexual Violence

You Have Options. We Can Help.

If you or someone you know has been affected by sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking on or off campus, SAIC has a number of resources available for emotional support and reporting assistance. This website is designed to help you understand your options.  Resources on this site are designated as either Confidential or Private to better assist you in choosing how to share information. If you have experienced discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, please see the policies listed for more information.
