Welcome to the Ohio University Survivor Advocacy Program

 

Our mission is to create a safe campus where victims and survivors of sexual assault, stalking, and dating and domestic violence are thoroughly respected and supported. We work to empower the campus community to deal with these issues through confidential advocacy, education, and resources.

 

OUSAP is supported by the Ohio University Women's Center and is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Violence Against Women.

 

Our crisis line operates 24 hours a day during fall and spring semesters when classes are in session. You can reach the crisis line by calling 740-597-SAFE (7233). A trained advocate will be available to offer support, information, and resources. To meet with an advocate inside the office, you can call to schedule an appoint, email us at survivor.advocacy@ohio.edu, or stop into our offices on the ground floor of McKee House.
