Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center

SAPAC is moving!

Due to the renovations in the Union, SAPAC will be moving for the 2018-2019 school year! We will be relocating to the 3rd floor of 330 E. Liberty St. (the Michigan Square Building)! There is a door to the elevator just slightly past the CEW office doors. All of our contact numbers will remain the same. We are excited to continue providing service to the University of Michigan community in our new space!

If you have any questions or concerns about reaching our office, please call our office line at 734-764-7771 and we'd be happy to help.


Fall 2018 Peer Led Support Group

SAPAC's Peer-led Support Group is a weekly, drop-in, confidential healing space for UM students who identify as survivors of sexual violence, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, or stalking. The group aims to empower survivors and facilitate resilience, reconnection, stress relief, and anxiety reduction for our participants. We’ll be doing this through semi-structured activities, self-care practices, creative arts, and creating a safe space for sharing if participants choose to do so.
