The Sexual Assault Resource Team (S.A.R.T.) has two parts: (1) a prevention and education component, and (2) the hotline or counseling component. Both parts rely heavily on volunteers.
The prevention and education team accepts undergraduate volunteers, graduate students, staff and faculty. This team conducts programs to educate the University community about the issue of acquaintance/date rape. It is directed by the UM Police crime prevention officer. To volunteer, please call UM Police at (305) 284-6666 or contact Ken Lucas, Crime Prevention Coordinator, at (305) 284-1105.
The hotline or response team accepts graduate students, faculty and staff volunteers. There are volunteers on call 24 hours a day to assist rape victims, answer questions and to advise callers about University and community resources. The response team is under the supervision of the Counseling Center. Call (305) 284-5511 and ask for Drs. Cleary and Eberhardt to volunteer.
The S.A.R.T. program also needs help with ongoing publicity and marketing of the program. If you would like to help us stay visible on campus and in the University community, you may call either the Counseling Center at (305)284-5511 or Public Safety at (305) 284-6666. We are open to innovative ideas.
