About Us

What we are

Calvin’s Sexual Assault Prevention Team educates the Calvin community about the realities of sexual assault and harassment. SAPT is a safe place for survivors of sexual assault, with members willing to support and direct anyone with questions about the topic, big or small. We work to heighten the awareness of the community, strengthening the possibility of prevention in future situations.

Who we are

An interdisciplinary committee of students, faculty and administrators, each bringing our individual interests and abilities in areas such as psychology, pre-law, nursing, criminal justice, social work, education, gender studies, student development and self-defense.
