By offering victim services and trauma-informed counseling, we provide assistance to students whose lives have been impacted by sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, and stalking.
Collaboration lies at the heart of Project HEAL. We partner with a variety on-campus departments and off-campus agencies to unite our efforts in order to create a deeper impact within the community.
