Student Affairs Resource Administrators (SARAs) are trained members of the Student Affairs team. The SARAs’ primary role for you is to identify university and community resources that may benefit you. The SARAs will contact you to provide you with information and to offer support. You do not have to disclose details or discuss the incident with your SARA in order to receive the support and resources.

What is a SARA?
- Student Affairs Resource Administrators (SARAs) are trained members of the Student Affairs team. The SARAs’ primary role for you is to identify university and community resources that may benefit you.
- A SARA can also work with you to ensure that you understand the conduct process and the investigation process.
- Most importantly, a SARA will work with you to assist with interim measures that might be helpful to you. An interim measure may be for housing, academics, on-campus employment or transportation, for example, if you share a residence hall, class or work placement with the other student involved.
Who gets assigned a SARA?
- A SARA is assigned when the University receives a report of sexual or interpersonal misconduct. Both the student who experiences misconduct and the student who allegedly perpetrates misconduct (both Complainants and Respondents) will be connected with a SARA.

What should I expect from my SARA?
- A SARA is NOT another person to whom you have to tell your story. SARAs are there to assist with resources.
- A SARA will reach out to you via email and/or phone to schedule an appointment.
- A SARA reviews available interim measures including: academic (do you have concerns about classes or would you like your faculty notified?), residential (do you have concerns about where you are living?), transportation (would you like an escort from Public Safety?) and work (do you have concerns about where you work on campus?).
- A SARA provides a list of on campus and off campus resources.
- A SARA explains the conduct process, including information about confidentiality and retaliation.
- A SARA assigns a university-appointed Advisor if you request one.
- A SARA reaffirms that no contact is permitted between Complainant and Respondent(s) and that a university No Contact Order remains in place while also advising you of the option to seek orders of protection, no contact orders and restraining orders issued by California state courts.
What will my SARA expect from me?
- You do not have to respond to your SARA’s outreach but it is helpful for them to know if you would like to meet, speak by phone or communicate via email. It is also ok to respond to let them know you do not need any support or resources at that time. If you change your mind, you can reach out to your SARA later.
