Part 1. Short Answer
Please answer the following questions. Please keep your answers as concise as possible.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you want to join SARU.
SARU general body members attend weekly meetings (Tuesdays 8-9pm) and take an active role in planning and volunteering at events throughout the year. Are there any reasons you may not be able to make this commitment?
This will not necessarily affect the status of your application.
SARU's main goal is to provide survivors with the resources that they need to feel supported and heal. We run a 24/7 hotline for survivors of sexual assault, staffed by student members trained in crisis intervention and empathetic listening. Not all SARU members choose to operate the hotline, there are many other ways in which you can support survivors on campus.
