Office of Sexual Assault & Relationship Abuse (SARA):  The Office of Sexual Assault & Relationship Abuse Education & Response (SARA) promotes healthy, empowered, and consensual relationships at Stanford. SARA staff are professionally trained and experienced in addressing all matters related to sexual assault/misconduct, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. We provide education and training, consultations about options and resources, and outreach to engage students and facilitate the coordinated, comprehensive, and consistent response to these issues on campus.

Confidential Support Team (CST): The Confidential Support Team (CST) offers confidential support to Stanford students impacted by sexual assault and relationship violence, including domestic abuse, intimate partner abuse, stalking, and sexual or gender-based harassment. CST services include brief emotional support and ongoing individual counseling. The CST also provides information about your rights and reporting options, as well as support throughout the reporting process if pursued. These appointments are intended to provide confidential support for students who have experienced sexual/relationship violence as well as for those who have questions about how to help a survivor of sexual/relationship violence. The CST is staffed by a licensed psychologist and licensed clinical social worker. There is no charge for Stanford students. 

Title IX Office: Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (gender) in educational programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. Stanford University is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination on the basis of sex (gender), including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, relationship (dating and domestic) violence, and stalking. The University provides resources and reporting options to students, faculty, and staff to address concerns related to sexual harassment and sexual violence prohibited by Title IX and University policy.
