The Office of Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (SAPR) works to end intimate violence at Williams College by supporting students impacted by violence and implementing campus-wide prevention efforts. Through personalized workshops, public awareness campaigns, and community outreach, we deliver educational material about consent, sexual violence, partner abuse, healthy relationships, boundaries, and bystander intervention. We ground our work in data from campus climate surveys and student experiences, and engage a wide section of the student body and campus community to offer programming for different subgroups and stakeholders.
Williams SAPR also provides confidential support, education, and resource referral for students impacted by intimate violence. SASS Survivor Services, the staff-run, 24/7, confidential hotline operates out of our office and is reachable at (413) 597-3000. SASS advocates are trained to support survivors and their allies, discuss the Title IX disciplinary process, and connect students to the many resources available on campus.
SAPR also advises on policy changes and implementation as it relates to Title IX and intimate violence, and we partner with various offices and departments on campus to make resources inclusive and accessible to survivors.
