The Rape Crisis Center Campus Office offers education services, advocacy and counseling to survivors of sexual assault. A counselor is available for appointments 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (or as needed) Monday through Friday.
The location at UHS Counseling and Consultation Services is a satellite office of the main RCC office, which is located at 2801 Coho Street.
Serving Dane County since 1973, the Rape Crisis Center (RCC) provides services to the survivors (and their family and friends) of all forms of sexual violence, including recent sexual assault, past sexual assault, incest (past or present), sexual harassment, and sexual exploitation.
Services are provided free of charge and include crisis intervention and support (24 hour Crisis Line and on-call Advocate/Counselors) short-term counseling, support groups, therapy groups, medical/legal advocacy and accompaniment, community education, and Chimera Self- Defense Designed for Women. RCC serves women, children, and men.
RCC also offers Chimera, a nationwide self- defense program designed for the needs of women, which emphasizes avoidance and teaches psychological and physical protection skills. It borrows its name from the mythical beast, Chimera, whose name is associated with an imaginary fear. While fears of attack are far from imaginary, the fear that women are helpless to defend themselves is one which Chimera is dedicated to defeat. Chimera is taught by certified instructors who provide strong role models and ensure a safe space for the examination of experiences and feelings about sexual assault. They stress safety and confidentiality throughout all courses.
