About Us


We envision a Kent State university community where all people learn, work and live free from violence.


The Center for Sexual and Relationship Violence Support Services empowers those affected by power-based personal violence and educates the community about healthy relationships and bystander action


The Center for SRVSS holds the following core values in the work that we do.
●    Believing and empowering survivors

●    Equity within university systems
●    A trauma informed response to survivors
●    Cultural competence in the services we provide
●    Respect, kindness and purpose in all we do
●    Collaborating with university and community partners
●    Positive change around attitudes and beliefs that perpetuate violence 
●    Empowering bystanders to share responsibility in ending violence
