The University's Sexual Assault Resources Website

Provides victims of sexual violence with important online resources that reflect the UW’s commitment to preventing and responding to sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and sexual harassment.

Confidential Advocates

Advocates provide a free, confidential place to seek support, information, and assistance for people who have experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment, and other forms of sexual misconduct. Speaking to an advocate will not compel an individual to make a report or to participate in an investigation or conduct process.

SafeCampus

SafeCampus is staffed 24 hours, 7 days a week and works with UW partners to assess and respond to personal and workplace safety concerns. In addition, SafeCampus has been designated as the office for employees to contact if they become aware that someone in our University community has experienced sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, sexual harassment, or other forms of sexual misconduct.
