SVPA Campus Score

The SVPA Campus Score is the only assessment for campus sexual violence practices. By assessing universities' policies, programs, and procedures, the SVPA Score provides transparency and standardization. This empowers prospective students, staff, and donors to make informed decisions when deciding what universities to become involved with. University administrators are also empowered to improve their practices while receiving public recognition for their efforts to keep their campus' safe. The SVPA Score will soon be a factor included in ranking and comparison systems such as US News and Niche. As the only national standard for campus sexual violence practices, the SVPA Campus Score is a valuable tool for ensuring sexual violence prevention and survivor support.  

Sexual Violence & Student Debt

For many survivors, campus sexual violence causes higher student loans or increased difficulty paying off student debt. Survivors of campus sexual violence often face increased student loans because they have to redo courses, take leave to recover, change programs, transfer schools, lose scholarships, or drop out. Survivors face increased difficulty paying back loans due to mental health issues, lower GPAs, or higher medical expenses. Many survivors feel trapped by their student loans. It is triggering being indebted to an institution that failed to protect them. Unfortunately, it is impossible to create a student loan forgiveness program that is specific to survivors. Thus, the only option is to cancel student debt for all. If sexual violence affected your student loans, you can share your experiences here.

"Sexual violence is pervasive in every country, every community, and every culture. It is systemically embedded in society and used as a form of oppression.  But sexual violence is not inevitable.  It can and will be prevented.  That's our mission here at the SVPA."
