Talk to us!

To get in touch with SARA during the week for any needs regarding sexual assault, you can come to our walk-in office hours on Wednesday from 6-9pm in the WRC (the WRC is on the third floor of the University Center, down the hallway opposite the career center).

Or schedule an appointment with a SARA using this form: Request a SARA Appointment

SARA is a network of trained, unbiased peer advocates who provide support, resources, and education to all members of the Willamette University community who have experienced sexual or domestic harassment, assault, or violence.

If you or someone you know was sexually assaulted...
an hour ago, last week or before you came to Willamette
If you want someone to explain...
reporting processes and prosecutorial systems
of Willamette University and Salem police
If you want information about...
confidential counseling resources and free medical treatment
in the Salem area and on campus

If you just want someone to listen, to believe you
and know that it was absolutely not your fault, 
please get in touch with us.

**SARA will take all information in confidence, as University policy requires all SARA volunteers who receive information about sexual misconduct involving students to share that information with a minimal number of campus officials, first to ensure that the student who discloses receives support and care, and also in consideration of the safety of the broader campus community. This may include individual members of the university’s Sexual Misconduct and Assault Response Team (SMART), Behavior Review Team, or Title IX Coordinators Kristen Grainger and Elizabeth Trayner.
