If you need someone to talk to, a great service that we have at K-State is SafeZone Allies. SafeZone Allies provide support and assistance for anyone affected by homophobia, hateful acts, and sexual violence. They are a “safe zone” for you to approach. Everything is confidential and the allies are there to listen, provide support, and refer to other resources on campus if needed. Other services available include Counseling Services, the Women’s Center, and Affirmative Action.
Having a hard time adjusting on campus? Problems dealing with stress, family, relationships, alcohol, eating disorders, or other issues? Counseling services provides short-term, focused counseling in the areas of: decision-making, crisis intervention, solution, adjustment, and matters of personal concern. They also assist in identifying and referring additional resources on campus and in the community. Check out their website resource page for self-help tips. Also, the Alcohol and Other Drug Education office supports access to personal assessment on alcohol and other drug use.Hide Description
SafeZone is coalition of campus faculty/staff and students who are trained to be a resource to all members of the campus community. Allies are trained to help students in need by listening and then offering information and referral to helpful campus resources. Allies are visible by their posting the SafeZone logo at their desk/workspace and by their being listed on the SafeZone website map and directory (see website for details at http://www.k-state.edu/safezone).Hide Description
K-State Women's Center
206 Holton Hall
The K-State Womenís Center works to promote a safe and equitable work and learning environment for all K-State students through advocacy, presentations, academic classes, training, and referral. Over 150 K-State men and women from all majors comprise the Womenís Centerís student group, W.A.R. (Wildcats Against Rape), dedicated to raising awareness and lowering the incidence of campus sexual violence. The P.E.E.R.S. (Proactive Educators for the Elimination of Rape and Sexual Violence) class is taught by the K-State Womenís Center Director and is founded on the belief that students can effectively educate each other on issues concerning rape and sexual/relationship violence. The K-State Womenís Center sexual assault advocate provides 24-hour assistance for K-State students who have been victimized by violence or who are threatened by biased, hateful, or criminal behavior. Staff members work with individuals who are filing complaints under K-Stateís Policy Prohibiting Sexual Violence and with offices and agencies on and off campus who can help students with law enforcement, legal, medical, and academic concerns. We promote a healthy, caring campus through SafeZone (http://www.k-state.edu/safezone/), nonviolence works http://www.k-state.edu/nonviolence/index.htm and such projects as the Manhattan Empty Bowls Project.Hide Description
