Sexual Assault and Anti-Violence Information Office

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, intimate-partner violence, or stalking. 

When a survivor first comes into SAAVI, they will meet with an advocate and learn about 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 (setting up an appointment with Title IX to report, connecting the student to a therapist, etc.) Students may utilize SAAVI services as long as they are a student or may also come to our office to get involved with volunteer opportunities or our SAAVI Peer Educator program.


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 sexual violence and how you can stand up and help those threatened by it.
