Program Mission

The Sexual and Relationship Violence Response Program at the WRC addresses sexual violence at PSU by providing students connections to resources, information, and trauma-informed support. We advocate for best practices in campus coordinated response efforts at all levels of the institution.

Confidential Advocacy Services

The WRC serves students of all genders. We are available to answer questions, work with student survivors, and advocate on behalf of their self-identified needs, decisions, wishes, questions, and concerns. This includes:

  • Providing intervention, support, information, and referrals.
  • Serving as a liaison between the student and campus departments such as Residence Life, Campus Public Safety, Student Health and Counseling, Student Legal Services, and the Office of Student Affairs.
  • Serving as a liaison and advocate with University faculty and staff.
  • Assisting in linking the student survivor to off-campus community services when needed.
  • Assisting the student survivor with accessing and understanding University policy, including Student Conduct Code.

Program Activities

The WRC's Sexual and Relationship Violence Response Program focuses on three areas of activities:

  • Students: Providing direct, individual student services.
  • Campus Community: 1) Chairing the PSU Interpersonal Violence Task Force and 2) Working with faculty and staff to address specific situations; offer classroom presentations and trainings; partner in offering Capstone classes focused on sexual assault awareness.
  • Portland Community: Active membership in off-campus collaborative groups including the Multnomah County Sexual Assault Response Team, Multnomah County Family Violence Coordinating Council, and Attorney General Sexual Assault Task Force.
Non-discrimination and equitable access

Pursuant to federal and state law, community-based advocacy programs receiving federal or state grant funding shall not discriminate, withhold services, or provide preferential treatment on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

  Learn more about non-discrimination

Certain information shared between certified advocates and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking is protected under Oregon state law. 

  Learn more about confidentiality

If you have had a negative experience with a shelter or advocacy program, we recommend speaking directly with that organization's executive director or other management personnel. 

If that fails to resolve the dispute, or you feel that the organization has treated you unfairly, you have the option of submitting a formal complaint to the Oregon Department of Human Services.

The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence provides training, research and other support to our member programs, in the interest of better serving survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking throughout the state. We do not have regulatory oversight or supervisory authority over our member programs.
