SAPAC Affirms Commitment to Community 

SAPAC has been providing care and addressing sexual violence on UM's campus for over 30 years. We are committed to addressing sexual violence through prevention education and healing. It remains our goal to educate the University of Michigan community about sexual assault, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, gender based violence and stalking in order to raise awareness and promote a nonviolent campus community from a primary prevention approach. We promote equality and respect for all members of our community. We offer space for all survivors in our community including, students, faculty and staff. SAPAC recognizes that survivors are experts in their own lives. We strive to create a supportive and safe environment, empowering survivors with the knowledge to make their own decisions. (September 7, 2017)
