The University of Tulsa Committee Against Sexual Violence
The Advocacy Alliance is a university-wide effort to end violence on our campus.
The Advocacy Alliance is an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental committee, which seeks to prevent and intervene with regard to interpersonal violence on The University of Tulsa’s campus. This committee has been in place since the 1980s. In 2012, the Alliance overhauled its goals and vision for the committee to stay in line with current best practices around sexual violence prevention and education.
The Alliance is composed of individuals from a number of programs and departments, including Dean of Students’ Office, Tulsa Institute for Trauma, Adversity and Injustice, Student Affairs, Alexander Health Center, TU Counseling and Psychological Services, Greek Life, TU Athletics, Campus Security, TU Housing, International Student Services, TU Board of Trustees and many more.
Student Alliance for Violence Education (S.A.V.E.)
The Student Alliance for Violence Education is a student group that organizes educational programming for the campus community. Beginning in 2014 SAVE has hosted numerous events every year with 2017 being the group’s most active year to date. Each yeah SAVE partners with different groups on campus to host the Vagina Monologues to fundraise for our community partner Domestic Violence Intervention Services of Tulsa. The group also helps to staff the Clothesline Project and a number of its members are student trainers for our Bringing in the Bystander program.
