Safety Planning

If your computer is not safe to do an online assessment, come to the Stop Violence office in Knight Hall 106 and you can use one of our computers.


No matter what else you decide to do or not do, it's important to take steps to help you feel and stay safe, both physically and emotionally. Safety planning is the process of thinking through available resources and options, and developing a plan to maximize the likelihood that you will stay safe from future violence. 

Safety planning is most effective when done with a confidential advocate or someone else with detailed knowledge of available resources and options. You can make an appointment or just drop in to see the SAFE Project Campus Services Coordinator, and get help developing a safety plan.

Danger Assessment

The Danger Assessment is a researched self-survey that can help inform how concerned you should be about your safety in your relationship. The survey score is not a guarantee, but the outcome has proved accurate in over 90% of situations. Please contact the SAFE Project Campus Services Coordinator or the Stop Violence Office if you have questions or concerns about your Danger Assessment score.

Take the Danger Assessment.


Stalking Harassment and Risk Profile (SHARP) Risk Assessment 

SHARP is a tool designed specifically to examine and assess stalking. SHARP is a 43 item web-based assessment which provides an assessment of the “big picture” of the stalking situation. It also provides a situational risk profile that consists of 12 factors associated with a wide variety of harms including physical or sexual attack, harm to others, ongoing and escalating stalking and harassment, and life sabotage.

SHARP is free to use and provides both a narrative of the stalking situation and the risk profile as well as information about stalking risks and safety suggestions.

If you are experiencing stalking, please contact the SAFE Project Campus Services Coordinator or the Stop Violence Office to discuss this assessment and to develop safety strategies.

Take the SHARP.
