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. 


SAPAC and Sexperteam's Trip to Ghana

During Spring Break 2017, Drs Munro-Kramer (Nursing; http://nursing.umich.edu/faculty-staff/michelle-l-munro-kramer) and Rominski (Medical School; http://globalreach.med.umich.edu/leadership-advisory-staff) led a group of six students to the University of Cape Coast in Ghana to work on the prevention of sexual violence. The U-M students represented graduate and undergraduate programs in Nursing (Caitlin Choi), Public Health (Maryn Lewallen & Lindsay Cannon), LSA (Emily Liu, Briana Sanders, Meagan Williams), and Social Work (Lindsay Cannon).


Bystander-intervention program helps students recognize, combat sexual assault

In December, Central Student Government instituted a new policy mandating all student groups seeking funding upward of $1,000 to send two authorized signers to training held by the Bystander Intervention and Community Engagement program in conjunction with Wolverine Wellness. As of February, CSG statistics showed 216 students from more than 100 organizations had attended a session.
