About Us

Established in 2013, the Office of Sexual and Relationship Violence Support Serivces (SRVSS) provides the university response to power-based personal violence (sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking.)

As part of the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the SRVSS Office is open at any member of the Kent State community.

The SRVSS Office is staffed by a full-time professional who provides response support, university-wide awareness and group education around issues of power-based personal violence, consent, healthy relationships, bystander intervention and responding to those who have been impacted.
