Who do we serve?


  • Any student who has dealt with sexual assault, domestic violence, harassment, and / or stalking. 
  • It doesn’t matter when the harm occurred – sometimes students struggle with something that happened before arriving at Tarleton.

Faculty / Staff Consultations:

  • We can visit about students of concern, how to support survivors, etc.
  • We can provide information, presentations, materials, etc. for your classes.

Why do we serve?

  • Trauma disrupts every facet of a person’s life.
  • It can be challenging to concentrate on academics when wrestling with the aftermath of violence.
  • We want to keep our survivors in school, working toward their dream of an education.
  • Violence is wrong. Period. Survivors deserve support with getting their lives back on track and healing from harm. We can help with that process.
