designed to help victims of violence and harassment.
Women's Center: Gender Violence Prevention Program
The Women's Center: Gender Violence Prevention Program exists in response to the pervasive
problem of sexual assault on college campuses, and in the larger society.
A combination of education, meaningful policies, and victim-centered
is the framework for the program at SCSU.
The Women's Center is the designated department at St. Cloud State University
to collect reports of sexual assault, and students, staff and faculty
are urged to report such incidents. Third party reports are accepted
and anonymity is preserved. We work closely with the Public Safety Department
and St. Cloud Police Department in order to serve the needs of victims.
For information, or to report a sexual assault, contact the Women's
Center's Sexual Violence Prevention Program at (320) 308-3995 or 308-4958.
