SARP Student Organizations


The Student Title IX Assistance & Resource Team (START) is a confidential peer-to-peer resource for students seeking Title IX-related support*. Title IX-related issues include gender-based discrimination, rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, and stalking.

START members are students trained to provide resources and information for fellow students regarding the Title IX process at CC. We also provide information about other resources available on and off campus for Title IX-related issues. START is not, however, a resource for crisis situations.

START is a student­ run organization that operates under the supervision of the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator's (SARC) Office and works with the college's Title IX coordinators.

*START members are not advocates, nor do they sit in on any of the Title IX official proceedings.

Survivor Only Space

Are you interested in being apart of the sexual assault survivor-only space on campus?

The Student-Led Survivor Only Space facilitates art workshops, present journal prompts, and leads conversations around certain aspects of survivorship and healing processes.

Food, art supplies, journal materials, and support are provided! We are open to any and all suggestions to continue to re-evaluate this space so it feels safe and inclusive. Click here for examples of past meetings.

  1. I know that the information shared in these meetings will remain confidential to this group, unless I am putting myself or someone else in danger, in which case I will be directed to the resources I need.

  2. I will not share the names of the individuals that attended this meeting with anyone outside of this group without the specific permission of the members.

  3. I am in charge of deciding how much information I want to share, and I will not pressure any members into sharing information they are not yet ready to discuss. I am also in charge of deciding if I want to share my video during these meetings, or if I want to remain anonymous and listen in.

  4. I will not take any photos or videos of these meetings.

  5. I will be mindful of the physical space I am in, and I will wear headphones if I am not

    alone in this space to protect the people in this group.
