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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop into our offices on the ground floor of McKee House.
The Ohio University Survivor Advocacy Program provides the following services:
We have a non-judgemental and completely confidential approach that involves actively listening to survivors and respecting and supporting their decisions.
Please note that our crisis line has limited hours during the summer months. Please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible. If you are in need of immediate assistance, please contact RAINN's National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE (4673). If you are in danger, please call 911.
