uSafeUS provides survivors, allies, family members, faculty, staff, and community members at US colleges and universities with instant access to localized information and tools for the prevention of and response to sexual assault.
uSafeUS includes interactive tools to help keep students safe in potentially dangerous situations. It also offers research and trauma informed information, in the form of both helpful answers and options / next steps, which support victims and their allies in the aftermath of an assault. Finally, uSafeUS provides colleges and universities with control of the local resource information students have access to, in the event of an assault, to help ensure incidents are properly handled.
uSafeUS is an updated version of uSafeNH, which was developed by the University of New Hampshire's Prevention Innovations Research Center (PIRC). For more than a decade, PIRC has conducted research and developed tools and resources to prevent sexual violence and stalking.
PIRC collaborated with a range of UNH and New Hampshire state organizations in the development of uSafeNH, including the STEM Discovery Laboratory at UNH Manchester, the NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, the NH SART Project, the NH Attorney General’s Office, and the NH Violence Against Women Campus Consortium.
