The mission of Project for a Sexual Assault-Free Environment (Project S.A.F.E.) is to end sexual violence and to build healthier relationships on the Occidental campus.

We support this mission by providing culturally competent and inclusive prevention education programs. We also provide advocacy, resources and support services for survivors/victims of sexual and relationship violence, including sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and sexual harassment.

COVID-19 Updates

During this time of transition and upheaval, Project SAFE remains a resource for Oxy students both on and off campus. Our staff are working remotely, and the best way to reach us is by email. We acknowledge that these are uncertain and surreal times, and that social distancing, the need to return home, and a change in routine without a concrete end date can all exacerbate acute violence or the mental health impact of past trauma. Please know that you are not alone, we are here for you, and we want to help.
