Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)

Last updated: March 21, 2014

We listen.  We understand.  We help.  

Western Connecticut State University's Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is designed to provide a coordinated, caring and effective team response to survivors of sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, and dating or domestic violence. The purpose of the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is to assist all Western Connecticut State University students in the coordination of support and response to incidents of interpersonal violence on-campus and off-campus. SART team members can provide a survivor with many supportive options and choices: including counseling, medical attention, judicial services, advocacy, referrals, and general information regarding interpersonal violence.


Should a survivor choose to file a police report, the University Police and Women's Center staff will assist her or him with the reporting process. We will strive to empower the survivor to make her or his own decisions by providing on- and off-campus resources, and then offer support as needed.


The Sexual Assault Response Team  has been designated by the Division of Student Affairs to coordinate the efforts of various campus departments in order to provide a caring and effective response to members of the Western community who have been victimized. For information or to report a sexual assault case, students may contact any member of the team.
