Sexual Assault Response Team
Contact University Police, University Police or any University official
The Sexual Assault Response Team is a team comprised of trained sexual assault nurse examiners, University police officers, and trained campus interpersonal violence advocate and was created to assist the victims of sexual assault. Montclair State University SART is modeled after New Jersey State standards and provides services on campus that would be obtained at official SART sites throughout the state. The team is trained to provide victim-centered, compassionate, comprehensive care directly on campus. The SART service is available to any individual who is a victim of sexual assault within the confines of campus grounds. This includes Montclair State students, visitors and employees. SART is also available to Montclair State students who are victims of sexual assault that occurs outside Montclair State University property. Visit SART’s website.
CERT (Community Emergency Response Team)
Part of the United States Citizen Corps Program, the Montclair State University CERT team was established in 2003. CERT members give critical support to first responders in emergencies, provide immediate assistance to victims, organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site, and collect disaster intelligence to support first responder efforts. Montclair State University is the first college in New Jersey to have such a program, and one of only four nationwide. More information is available on the Emergency Information website.
Bias Response Task Force (BRT)
In its continuing mission to provide the most comprehensive services to victims of crime and provide a community outlet for positive change, the University has created a Bias Response Task Force to help eradicate instances of bias intimidation, hate crimes and intolerance. The University Police Department is an active member of this campus-wide initiative that provides proactive education, advocacy for affected groups, and information sharing for the most inclusive response when hate crimes occur and to also educate community members to empower themselves to prevent and report instances.
