Who we are

The Sun Devil Support Network (SDSN) is a group of students who provide ASU community members with support, information, and resources related to incidents of sexual violence. Students in the Sun Devil Support Network complete 16-20 hours of training before being added to this contact list. Feel free to contact anyone on the list that you feel comfortable with, though please note this is not a hotline service and you may not be able to reach someone immediately. The Sun Devil Support Network is a private but not confidential resource. Students within the Sun Devil Support Network must report any identifying information reported to them (such as names and locations) about specific incidents of sexual misconduct to the SDSN staff. Survivors who utilize SDSN as a resource are under no obligation to share specific details or participate in the reporting of student conduct or criminal processes. When a survivor engages with the Sun Devil Support Network, they will be made aware of all options available to pursue reporting or other confidential support resources.

If you need immediate assistance, please contact ASU Counseling, ASU Police or in case of emergency dial 9-1-1.

If you have questions about SDSN, please email SDSN@asu.edu. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Sun Devil Support Network, register for information about the next training here.

Students serving on the Sun Devil Support Network can be viewed below according to the campus at which they attend classes.
