LSU Health Shreveport recognizes the need for improved safety measures for our students. The SAVE Program is a Sexual Assault and Violence Education Program that provides resources to all students, faculty and staff on campus. This education and prevention program provides an avenue to increase the level of awareness of our students and provide them with the tools and resources needed in the event of a crisis. More specifically, the goal is to increase awareness and reduce the risk of faculty, students, staff or visitors from becoming a victim of sexual assault, domestic or dating violence and stalking.
All new, incoming students, both male and female, attend SAVE Program training during Orientation. Under this program an educational and prevention curriculum is provided that specifically addresses sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, and stalking. The goal of this program is to reduce the risk of violence on and off of our campus.
To help guide the direction of the program, the Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) was developed. The CCRT includes the members from the some of the following areas: University Diversity Officer; Assistant Deans for Academic Affairs, School of Medicine, School of Allied Health and School of Graduate Studies; University Disciplinary Board Member; Project Celebration, Inc. representative; community victim survivor; UPD Education Program Director; UPD Assistant Education Program Director; three female students – one from each school; local judicial system representative; Caddo Parish Police representative; and two local law enforcement representatives.
