Sexual Assault Prevention and Response at Reed

Stewards                             smiling stewards

SAPR stewards are friendly, sober, supportive presences in bright yellow t-shirts at student-coordinated dances and other events at Reed. These trained student staff and volunteers don't enforce policies, but are there to be helpful in a wide variety of situations, including unwanted sexual aggression.

Stewards are confidential resources, and will not share names or identities of people seeking their help without permission. At least one member of each pair is a trained SAPR advocate. They can contact community safety officers on behalf of people who would like intervention, but who don't want to make the call themselves. They also carry candy and gum to give out, so feel free to stop by and say hi! 

If you'd like to request stewards at your Reed event, please email  saprstewards@reed.edu with the date and time of your event. The captain will follow up with you.

Being a steward is a great way to get involved in your community. A two-hour steward training is held during fall and spring semesters, and again before Renn Fayre. An application and release of information are available here. After your application is approved, you'll be contacted by the steward captain, who will schedule your training and make sure you get your snazzy yellow shirt.
