SARAH is a 24/7 helpline to support students who have been victimized, are supporting others or who have questions about relationship or sexual violence. SARAH is run by students who have completed a minimum of 60 hours of training on how to best understand issues of relationship and sexual violence and how to support individuals. They are well versed in both campus and community resources and are there to listen 24 hours a day. We encourage you to call them at 314-935-8080, or email SARAH.

  • The Date

The Date is a sexual violence prevention program run every year for incoming students--it is an important part of promoting a safer community on campus. Written, performed, and directed by WU students, the live performance has been part of New Student Orientation since 2001, and this endeavor is our largest prevention education program. Student volunteers go through training to facilitate the discussions following The Date, which include conversations about sex and consent, bystander intervention, and sexual assault on campus. The facilitation process is coordinated by the student organization Leaders in Interpersonal Violence Education (LIVE).
