The Sexual Assault Response Consultative (SARC) Team members are professional staff members at The George Washington University trained and prepared to assist the survivor of sexual assault or rape. The Team members do not act as counselors, but provide the survivor with information and resources in order to make informed decisions regarding the incident.

This information includes:

  • assisting the survivor in identifying her or his medical, legal, counseling, and academic assistance needs

  • identifying the appropriate campus and/or community services to provide necessary assistance

  • providing follow-up with the survivor to determine if the services have been obtained and have met the survivor's needs

  • and, explaining options, such as filing a report with the Metropolitan Police Department, filing a civil suit, reviewing disciplinary options available through the University's student judicial system, discussing University housing options, and acting as an educator about rape and sexual assault.

Prior to September 2012, the SARC Team was called the SACC Team. The services provided to survivors of sexual violence remain the same, only the name has changed.
