Ask the SART

About SART

Ask the SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) is an online service for members of the Kent State University community through which trained staff from Kent State’s Sexual Assault Response Team and SRVSS Office provide information, support and referrals for survivors of power-based personal violence (sexual assault, relationship abuse and stalking) and their friends and allies.

The SART is comprised of professionals from Counseling and Psychological Services, the Women’s Clinic at the Health Center, Public Safety, Office of Student Conduct, Title IX and the SRVSS Office.  We can answer questions related to health, well-being, safety, university policy and support.  

Ask the SART

Ask the SART is not for formal reporting of incidents of power-based personal violence. To make a formal report please contact the University Police, Office of Student Conduct or Title IX directly. The SRVSS Office can assist you in this process as well.

As an online service, we cannot completely guarantee the confidentiality of this communication. In accordance with SRVSS policies, however, we will not share the content of this email exchange or your identity outside of the Kent State Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) unless legally compelled to do so (for example, if your question includes a report of abuse affecting someone under the age of 18), or if the content includes a legitimate threat to yourself or others.
