Safer is Cal Poly’s primary confidential resource for addressing sexual assault, intimate partner violence, domestic violence, stalking, sexual exploitation and harassment. 

Located within Campus Health and Wellbeing, Safer offers holistic services to the entire campus community regarding gender- & power-based violence. Our Advocacy Staff supports survivors of violence (and their loved ones) directly, by offering confidential crisis support and advocacy, which includes crisis intervention, accompaniments, referrals, and more. Our Prevention Education Staff engages the campus community in setting pro-social behavior norms and encouraging community accountability so this violence never occurs in the first place. 
    Safer welcomes people of all identities to utilize our services, and are committed to ensuring our services are inclusive and accessible to all members of our campus community. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religious or spiritual beliefs, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexuality, military status, or documentation status in any of our activities or operations.
