You are not alone. We’re here to help.

Eastern Connecticut State University’s Sexual Assault & Interpersonal Violence Response Team, also known as the SAIV-RT and designated by the Division of Student Affairs, is a campus community-based team. The SAIV-RT works comprehensively to respond to all forms of interpersonal violence, including, but not limited to sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking.

The team provides supportive options including, but not limited to, counseling, medical support, judicial and legal services, academic intervention, referrals, advocacy, and general information regarding sexual assault and interpersonal violence. The SAIV-RT provides a proactive and informed response to issues of interpersonal violence and is available to help anyone. On this website you will find many resources: definitions of interpersonal violence, the policies in place to protect students, faculty and staff, and the various steps you can take to if you or someone you know has experienced harassment or assault.

If you, or someone you know, is a survivor of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking, the SAIV-RT can assist in providing a private, safe and supportive space to talk, an opportunity to understand options for on-campus and off-campus reporting procedures, and assist in addressing other campus concerns. For more information about the Sexual Assault & Interpersonal Violence Response Team, or to report a sexual assault or any form of interpersonal violence you may contact any member of the team.

In case of an emergency, call 911. If the urgent need is happening after-hours or during weekends, support is available via phone to Eastern Public Safety at 860-465-5310.
