SAFE Center 
Safety. Advocacy. Forensics. Empowerment. 

Established in 2014 (formerly the Office of Victim Services), The SAFE Center is a campus resource that engages in an all-inclusive and forensic response to intimate partner violence such as sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, stalking, and strangulation victimization. Our highly trained and experienced staff work with victims of intimate partner violence to restore well-being, ease trauma, and eliminate secondary injury and re-traumatization through a team model continuum of care. The Center also engages in outreach programming and research designed to eradicate intimate partner violence, with a focus on sexual assault and domestic/dating violence. Our outreach programming is a product of innovative multi-stakeholder prevention initiatives that are interdisciplinary and contribute to civic engagement and community building.

Mission: Provide elevated and comprehensive student-centered, trauma-informed services to KSU students and employees who were victims of crime.  The goal of the SAFE Center team is to reduce the level of trauma and secondary injury to the crime victim and restore the victim’s wellbeing by using a holistic team continuum of care approach to each case.  The purpose of this approach is to centralize crime victim resources to avoid victims presenting to multiple locations while enduring trauma. We believe a holistic approach will help students cope with the negative effects of victimization such as PTSD, poor academic performance, depression, anxiety, and substance use.
