These students work with survivors of abuse (either recently or in the past), or secondary survivors (UGAs, friends, family, or partners). A SAPA provides support, referrals, and advocacy. SAPA is a peer advising group sponsored by Dartmouth College's Department of Student Health Promotion & Wellness. The Sexual Assault Awareness Program Coordinator serves as the advisor. For more information click HERE or blitz SAPA
