Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence

The Coalition on Sexual and Relationship Violence (COSARV) at Bentley University provides information, resources, and education to our community to encourage healthy, respectful relationships. COSARV also works collaboratively to decrease relationship violence, sexual harassment, and sexual assault involving our students.   

In accordance with the Bentley Beliefs, COSARV fosters and promotes:

  • Respect
  • Open communication
  • Shared responsibility for one another
  • A safe, positive learning and living environment

These resource pages are designed to foster healthy relationships and support those who have survived a sexual assault or unhealthy relationship, as well as those who care about them. Included is information for students, faculty, and staff regarding resources, incident reporting, and how to help others.
