Mission Statement

Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) is a student-run, volunteer organization on campus that provides an anonymous, confidential hotline open seven days a week through which members of the campus community can obtain guidance and support following the occurrence of sexual assault, harassment, or abuse regardless of when or where the sexual trauma occurred. SASS is a non-reporting body acting under the auspices of Counseling Services and may function as a resource to members of the campus community any amount of time after sexual violence has taken place. SASS students are trained to serve as a resource to both survivors of sexual trauma and to friends and loved of ones of survivors of sexual trauma.  SASS also strives to work with other campus community partners to provide educational opportunities and programming for Muhlenberg College regarding sexual violence.

Muhlenberg College is known nationally as “The Caring Campus,” and helping members of our community recover from sexual violence is everyone’s responsibility. SASS is committed to contributing a student element to our campus’s network of support and resources available for responding to sexual violence.
