Empowering the Survivor

The Office of Victims Assistance provides direct services to survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking as well as campus-wide educational programming to prevent these crimes from occurring. The office is staffed with a full-time Victim Services Coordinator and a part-time licensed counselor who provide on-going support to the survivor, male or female, from the time of initial reporting. The staff provides counseling services and assists with obtaining sexual assault forensic exams, STI testing/treatment, pregnancy prevention, housing options, legal prosecution, and access to other support services. Each case is handled individually, and the client is allowed to select which services he or she wishes to pursue.

In the case of an after-hours emergency, please call Campus Police at (803) 323-3333 or the local rape crisis center, Safe Passage, at (803) 329-2800.
