Sexual and Relationship Violence Support Services
College campuses across the nation are facing a serious problem and unfortunately, the numbers do not lie. The issue of power-based personal violence (sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking) is an issue of significant concern on college campuses, including Kent State University. Nationally, women have a one-in-six statistical probability of being sexually assaulted (one in thirty-three for men) and college women are four times as likely to be sexually assaulted as are other women. These statistics are simply unacceptable and we believe we can do better at Kent State University.

The Office of Sexual & Relationship Violence Support Services

The Office of Sexual and Relationship Violence Support Services, (SRVSS - pronounced "serves"), at Kent State University, was established to educate students about personal safety and violence prevention, to empower them to build healthier relationships, and to be responsive to students in need.

The SRVSS office offers resources and education for:

  • Students
  • Faculty and Staff
  • Personal Safety
  • Sexual Assault and Rape
  • Relationship Violence
  • Stalking

It is our hope that this website will be helpful to anyone in our community who may be dealing with power-based personal violence and are in need of services, education, or support.
