S.A.R.T. is a telephone resource line for University of Miami students administered by the Counseling Center. If you have been sexually battered, assaulted, or molested, recently or in the past, you may talk, anonymously, to a trained volunteer about it. The telephone resource line is also available to those seeking information or support regarding these issues.
We are available during the regular academic year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our service is available to all genders.
The S.A.R.T. program began in 1992 to provide students with a way to talk about these issues anonymously, from the privacy of a telephone. It is administered by the University of Miami Counseling Center. Drs. Audrey Cleary and Carolyn Eberhardt, Counseling Center psychologists, coordinate the program.
S.A.R.T. advocates (volunteers who answer the telephone resource line) are faculty, staff and graduate student volunteers from the University community. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact either Dr. Cleary or Dr. Eberhardt to arrange for an interview. Drs. Cleary and Eberhardt train S.A.R.T. volunteers on how to handle calls and provide ongoing consultation and supervision. You may reach either one of them by contacting the Counseling Center at (305) 284-5511.
S.A.R.T. also has an education/prevention program. Volunteers will come to speak to your group, free of charge, about rape facts, statistics, prevention, and about sexual communication. Please contact the Counseling Center at (305) 284-5511 should you wish to schedule a program.
