Office of Victims Assistance
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
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.
The Office of Victims Assistance is committed to providing quality services and advocacy to victims and survivors of sexual assault, stalking, and
domestic and dating violence through a concentrated community response. We support and provide programming and education directed at eradicating sexual violence
both on campus and in the community.
