Historical note

The Sarah Lawrence College Advocacy to Create Choices Empower and Support Survivors (ACCESS) Program began in 2002 with support from a grant awarded by the Violence Against Women Office, Office of the Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. ACCESS was a program that provided support, assistance, and help for people who had experienced sexual assault, relationship violence and/or stalking. The program was led by Tracy McGarry and run in coordination with the Dean of Studies office, Health Services, and Student Affairs. ACCESS Alliance was a group formed to govern the distribution of the grant monies. After funding was not renewed in 2006 the three offices, in conjunction with the ACCESS Committee, continued to coordinate the services offered by the ACCESS Program.

Scope and Contents note

These records document the activities and function of the ACCESS Program. Administrative records, programming materials, and publications are all located in this collection.

Within Series I. Administration there are a few folders of note. In sub-series A. General the Board of Trustees folder contains slides from a presentation given to the Trustees at the initiation of the ACCESS Program. The second is a folder titled Faculty and Staff Information. This folder includes memos and informational material given to faculty and staff by the ACCESS Program. These materials provided resources for faculty and staff dealing with students who had been victims of assault. In the folder titled Yonkers, City of there is a memorandum of understating between the College and the city and police departments of Yonkers acknowledging the relationship between these organizations and the ACCESS Program. Sub-series B. Grants includes a folder titled Evaluations. These evaluations of the ACCESS Program were undertaken by agencies, such as The California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA), as part of reporting obligations enacted under the Violence Against Women Act of 2000 (VAWA). The evaluations measured the effectiveness of the programs and were undertaken on a biennial basis.

Series II. Programming contains a folder titled Film. The ACCESS Program produced a film in 2005 that includes interviews with students. This folder has interview questions, a film overview and description, and student feedback. The film has been rehoused in the Audiovisual Collection. The Orientation folder has calendars of events and material for students who helped present ACCESS information during orientations.
