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. 


SafeHouse Center's LGBTQIA+ Support Group

SafeHouse Center welcomes LGBTQIA+ survivors of all gender identities who have experienced or are experiencing intimate partner violence and/or sexual abuse to our new support group coming Spring 2017.

SafeHouse seeks to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential space where survivors can find support and healing from abuse.

Get Involved! Ally Training

The next Ally Training will take place in the Fall 2017 semester.

The SAPAC Ally Training Program seeks to empower participants with the knowledge, awareness, and skills needed to be actively involved in the movement to end sexual and intimate partner violence.  The SAPAC Ally Training Program is a great first step in receiving basic training regarding these issues and becoming a supporter of the movement.
