Message From the Director

Greetings Cal Poly Community,

After eight years at Cal Poly Safer, I wanted to take some time to share a few goals for the students, faculty, staff, parents and supports of the Cal Poly community. This year, Safer aims to increase education efforts, engage more academic departments and continue to foster a compassionate environment for any student, faculty or staff involved in sexual assault or intimate partner violence. One thing is for certain. The Safer staff, along with many campus partners and sister organizations, are dedicated to creating a culture where intimate relationships are reciprocal and respectful. As a mother of two boys, a proud Nicaraguan/Iranian activist and doctoral student, I am grateful to be spending another year engaging the Cal Poly community to think critically about how they communicate, treat people and care for themselves. Here’s to another year of serving the Cal Poly family and getting closer to ending gender based violence.


Christina Kaviani, MA
Director, Safer
Building 65, Room 217
