Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence Response Team (SART)

The Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence Response Team (SART) is part of Fresno State's Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) which focuses on sexual assault, dating/domestic violence and stalking.

Mission/Purpose:

The mission of SART is to address sexual violence, dating/domestic violence and stalking through the creation and coordination of crisis intervention and response protocols which construct a positive community culture that promotes healthy and respectful interactions and safety for all.

SART Membership

Fresno State’s Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence Response Team is primarily composed of first responders following a sexual assault, dating/domestic violence or stalking crisis incident. Although the police and victim advocate will most likely function as the core SART members, additional team members may be called upon to assist during a crisis incident.

SART Goals

To provide a seamless, effective and coordinated response to victim/survivors of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence and stalking who are in crisis and/or seeking services.
