What is HPV?
HPV is a very common virus; approximately one in four people are infected in the United States. About 14 million people, including teens, become infected with HPV each year. While not all strains of the HPV virus cause cancer, there are some that do. Every year in the United States, HPV causes 30,700 cancers in men and women, including genital warts and cancers of the cervix and penis. Approximately 75% to 80% of the population will contract HPV in their lifetime.
The HPV vaccination is the only vaccination that can prevent many of these cancers from every occurring!

Support And Resource Team (SART)
Southern Connecticut State University's Support and Resource Team (SART) is designed to provide a collaborative victim-centered team response to sexual violence. The mission of SART is to provide services that ensure a transition from victim to survivor for every individual whose life is impacted by sexual violence. SART members can provide a survivor with many supportive options including counseling, medical attention, judicial services, advocacy, referrals, and general information regarding sexual violence. Should a survivor choose to file a police report, the University Police and Violence Prevention, Victim Advocacy and Support Center (VPAS) staff will assist the individual with the reporting process. We strive to empower the survivor to make their own decisions by providing on- and off-campus resources, offer support as needed, and hold perpetrators accountable. The SART members will keep confidentiality to the best of their ability.
The SART has been designated by the Division of Student Affairs to handle sexual assault cases. The team includes a coordinator and designated individuals from throughout the University. The Support And Resource Team is available to help anyone who reports a violation of the sexual misconduct policy. In cases of immediate danger or an emergency, call the University Police at 911.
For information or to report sexual violence, students may contact any member of the team. Please visit the Violence Prevention, Victim Advocacy and Support Center website at www.SouthernCT.edu/sart/ for team members' contact information and details of services.
