SART protocol training

All UGA faculty and staff are encouraged to register for SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) protocol training. Presented by UGA’s Equal Opportunity Office/Title IX coordinator, it will be held Feb. 19 at 9 a.m. in the Training and Development Center. Register online at

The hourlong program will focus on the university’s protocol for appropriately responding to disclosures of sexual misconduct, including sexual violence and sexual assault, by students or other university members.

Issues to be addressed include manners of responding that support a survivor in the disclosure and recovery process; available resources on campus and in the greater community for sexual assault survivors; addressing safety and medical concerns of survivors; which UGA employees have confidentiality and which do not; identification of mandatory reporters and the information they are required to disclose; and options for investigation by law enforcement and/or the Equal Opportunity Office/Title IX coordinator.
