Sexual Assault and Anti-Violence Information Office
In accordance with the COVID-19 recommendations, the SAAVI main office (TSC 311) will not be open. We remain committed to ensuring that survivors recieve all the support they need. Although we are not open physically, all of our services and options are still available remotely. Please contact us through our main email firstname.lastname@example.org. We know this can be a time of distress, and we are here for you.
Additionally, we recognize that individuals who are surviving violence in their relationships and families may be experiencing increased isolation and danger due to the recent social distancing guidelines. Visit Futures Without Violence for a complete list of resources available to surivors nationwide.
SAAVI is a campus-based office providing safe, confidential counseling, advocacy and information to the USU community. SAAVI’s services are open to all USU students, staff, and faculty. All USU students across the state can contact SAAVI for help. If you are outside the Logan area, we can help you find resources in your local community. You are welcome to stop by TSC 311 anytime during business hours.
SAAVI advocates go through a specialized 40-hour training and can help you navigate your options to get help and report, obtain a forensic exam, accompany you to the police, or answer questions about sexual violence, relationship violence, or stalking.
When a survivor first comes to SAAVI, they will meet with an advocate and learn the expectations and responsibilities for working with an advocate. The survivor is in control of their healing journey, and thus gets to decide which resources they would like to receive. Once the student decides the advocate will help the student get connected with each resource.
You can help ensure the safety of the USU campus by helping create an environment intolerant to violence and supporting friends or loved ones who have suffered interpersonal violence. Learn more about forms of violence and how you can stand up and speak out.
