Below you will find resources and information at Western Michigan University, in the Kalamazoo community, and online for the benefit of anyone interested in/affected by sexual assault. It is by no means a complete guide to sexual assault, but rather a source of education and support. As sexual assault is an issue that ultimately affects us all, you are encouraged to seek additional resources and information based upon your unique interests and needs, and to join the global struggle to end sexual assault.
