Like all communities nationwide, USC experiences interpersonal violence, including sexual assault, harassment, stalking, and intimate partner violence. Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention & Prevention (SAVIP) strives to prevent interpersonal violence at USC and support survivors who have experienced and been impacted by interpersonal violence. SAVIP provides advocacy, outreach, education, and consultation to empower the campus community in identifying, preventing, and disrupting interpersonal violence, supporting survivors, and contributing to a campus culture that values and promotes healthy relationships and consent.
