The Sexual Assault Response & Prevention Center (SARP) compassionately responds to survivors of trauma and prevents interpersonal violence through awareness and education. 

SARP provides free-of-charge counseling and advocacy to Boston University students who have experienced a traumatic event. We respond to traumas such as sexual assault, dating violence, and other types of interpersonal violence. Discussions with SARP counselors are confidential and do not trigger a complaint to the University. To file an official complaint with the Offices of Equal Opportunity or Judicial Affairs please see the EEO/TIX website, the safety website or use this complaint form.
