Our Mission

The mission of Faculty Against Rape (FAR) is to get more faculty involved in sexual assault issues on campus, and to protect faculty members who experience retaliation for doing so. Our name is a nod to the Feminist Alliance Against Rape (FAAR), the first national anti-rape organization established in 1974. To fulfill our mission, we provide

  • resources for faculty to best support survivors inside and outside the classroom
  • tools for faculty who want to get more involved in reform efforts on their campus
  • support for faculty who are facing retaliation for fighting sexual violence on their campus

We are here to help and offer support every step of the way, so if you are a faculty member who is involved or wants to get more involved in eradicating sexual violence on your campus, please contact us.
