Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center

Our Vision & Philosophy

SAPAC promotes social change and activism on two levels: through the professional services we provide to the University of Michigan community, and through student leadership development wherein students help students as peers.  We believe that women and men must work together to eradicate sexual assault, stalking, sexual harassment, and intimate partner violence and that this necessitates activism in many areas, including education, advocacy, crisis-intervention, safety-building, bystander intervention, and policy development. 



Healthy Relationships

Healthy relationships are essential to our well being, whether they be romantic, friendships, family relationships, etc., so it is important to take time to think about what we want in our relationships and how we will go about working toward those things.

                                         If you imagine relationships being like trees---

                                                   The roots of healthy relationships are:

                                                                  -Accountability



Bystander Intervention

A proactive bystander is an individual who accepts personal responsibility for a situation and intervenes to ensure the well-being and/or safety of others.

Bystander intervention is necessary to create and promote a safe, respectful and welcoming community.

Steps to Intervention:
1. Notice the event
2. Interpret the event as problematic
3. Assume personal responsibility
4. Take action
