Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)
It is our hope that no one within our community will become a victim of sexual assault. However, if it occurs, the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) was created to meet all victim needs. Its members include University Police, sexual assault nurse examiners from the Health Center and campus interpersonal violence advocates. The SART team is trained to provide victim-centered, compassionate, comprehensive services directly; on campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the year. When a victim reports a sexual assault, all options, rights and services are explained. Montclair State University SART members will respond based on the options and services requested by the victim.
