SCU Violence Prevention Educators are a student-based sexual assault prevention, education, and bystander awareness organization at Santa Clara University, operating out of the Wellness Center.
The Wellness Center offers confidential survivor advocacy to SCU students who have been impacted by sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, and gender discrimination. We are dedicated to providing a safer, compassionate, and non-judgmental space for students to explore their options, rights, and resources. All staff members in the Wellness Center are designated as confidential, which means any information disclosed to them will not be revealed to anyone, including Title IX or law enforcement, without the student’s written permission.
SCU Office of Equal Opportunity and Title IX helps investigate and resolve complaints of discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, and sexual violence, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual exploitation, and stalking.
RAINN is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE) and carries out programs to prevent sexual violence, help survivors, and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.
YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley provides emergency shelter, legal support, and crisis intervention and more to help empower women and fight racism, sexism, and gender-based violence.
SafeChat is an online chatting platform that allows people who have experienced or are experiencing domestic violence or intimate partner violence to connect with an advocate for support. All our advocates can provide support with accessing resources such as legal aid, counseling, basic needs, and more; or can just be someone to talk to about what’s going on and what to do next.
