Oregon State University Student Health Services (SHS) is committed to taking an active stance in survivor-focused health care. SHS now offers a fully integrated Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program to support any female or male students who are survivors of sexual assault. By offering exams at the campus health center, sexual assault survivors can be in familiar surroundings with caring clinicians and do not have to be concerned about arranging transportation to the hospital. Survivors can continue seeing a Student Health clinician for any other health exams as well, which allows for a continuum of care for the survivor that includes sensitivity to their experience.

In addition, the OSU Health Promotion Department provides sexual violence education and awareness information for the campus community. Staff can provide workshops or presentations on topics related to dating violence, rape and sexual assault.
