We work to prevent and respond to incidents by collaborating with community services and other campus departments including WEAVE, My Sister’s House, the Sac State Women's Resource Center, the Sac State Pride Center, Student Housing, Student Judicial Affairs, Sac State Police Department, Employment Equity and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).
For more information or to speak with the Victim Advocate, call (916) 278-3799.
To file a complaint concerning harassment, sexual assault/dating violence, or stalking please visit the Office of Human Resources Equal Opportunity Page.
Our advocate can discuss these options with you and assist you in making a decision that is best for you.
Assist in reporting the crime If you want to report the crime to law enforcement, whether on campus or off campus, the advocate can accompany you during that process. Often a survivor will not want to report the assault to the police.
While you may not always agree with these types of decisions, respecting and supporting the survivor is very empowering.
The Sacramento State Violence and Sexual Assault Services Program, a component of Student Health and Counseling Services, is dedicated to reducing the incidence of sexual assault, domestic/intimate partner violence and stalking in the campus community.
We work to increase campus safety, to broaden public awareness about the nature of sexual assault, domestic/intimate partner violence and stalking, its impact on men and women, and to mitigate the trauma of the victim/survivor.
Our philosophy is that through education we can greatly reduce these forms of violence.
All intervention services are free and available to any Sac State student.
Services are available to any person who needs them regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability or religion. We provide a wide variety of programs and services designed to reduce trauma and to inform the University community about the resources available for dealing with sexual assault, domestic/intimate partner violence, stalking and their aftermath.
Our educational programs, tailored to meet the needs of individual audiences, include films, discussion groups, lectures, role-plays, and communication exercises.
We provide educational programs to many campus and community groups, including residence halls, sororities, fraternities, staff, athletic teams, student clubs and academic courses.
Our program recognizes the impact that sexual assault, domestic/intimate partner violence and stalking have on the campus environment.
