The Sexual Assault & Relationship Violence Prevention Program (SARV) began in 2007 when Kelly Schweda hired as Program Coordinator. First SARV workshops run in 2008.
OVER 30,000 STUDENTS COMPLETED SARV
- Over half of the male and female students that attended a workshop reported the workshop changed the way they think about relationship violence and sexual assault, and corrected misperceptions about both.*
- Of the students that attended SARV workshops, 26.6% of the male students and 35.8% of female students reported they were able to apply the information they learned over the course of the year.*
LBGTQ SARV WORKSHOP
LBGTQ SARV workshop added in 2012, which included a gender-neutral format and scenarios specific to LBGTQ students.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SARV
To respond to the needs of MSU’s ever-growing international student population, the International Student SARV workshop was added in 2015. This workshop seeks to accommodate students’ varying cultural norms, background education, and language proficiency as they relate to sexual assault & relationship violence.
