Sexual Assault Response Team
Mission of the Murray State University SART
To work together to provide a consistent, competent, and comprehensive response to those affected by sexual violence who seek services at Murray State University and in the Purchase Area.
The Murray State Sexual Assault Response Team or SART is a collaborative group of individuals who regularly respond to instances of sexual violence in the Murray State community. These individuals work together to coordinate a victim-centered approach to intervention and care for sexual assault survivors. MSU’s SART strives to balance two distinct sets of needs - those of the sexual assault survivor and those of the criminal justice system - by ensuring that all responders act according to established protocols and policies created by the entire Team. These protocols ensure that the criminal/legal system can pursue its goal of holding offenders accountable and ensuring community safety while maintaining the elements that ensure the response remains truly victim-centered.
Murray State SART members can provide resources and speakers to assist you with a variety of campus violence prevention efforts. To request assistance please complete our request form.
