- About Us
The MSU Sexual Assault Program responds to those impacted by sexual violence and works to create a community free of violence and oppression.
The Sexual Assault Program is honored to work with sexual assault survivors and all others who are impacted by sexual violence. We provide counseling and support groups to MSU students. Our 24-hour hotline and advocacy services are offered to anyone in the greater Lansing community. Please visit the ‘Services’ section to learn more.
The MSU Sexual Assault Program provided services to 300-400 survivors of sexual assault and other community members during the 2009-2010 academic year.
The Sexual Assault Program is proud to have over 120 volunteers. Our volunteers make a significant impact on our community by not only helping those in crisis, but by educating the public on the dynamics of sexual violence.
From October 2008 – September 2009, we trained 64 new Sexual Assault Crisis Intervention (SACI) volunteers. SACI provides medical advocacy, 24-hour crisis hotline support, legal advocacy, MSU judicial advocacy, and information/referral services. This past year, SACI volunteers provided 11,193 hours of service. That’s an amazing contribution!
Every 5 Minutes (E5M) is a theater troupe that educates the public about sexual assault. Their skits are performed in Residence Halls, classrooms, and other community organizations.
Based on a series of monologues by Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues are performed every spring on the campus of MSU. The play is both humorous and heartbreaking, allowing the audience to laugh and cry in a span of just over 1 hour.
The Sexual Assault Program and our volunteers can be seen all around campus and in the greater Lansing community. Below is a look at just some of the things our program has done during the 2009-2010 academic year. Contact our program if you would like to learn more about these efforts.
