The Center for Advocacy, Prevention & Education (CAPE) cultivates a survivor-centered, trauma informed, culture of consent. We aim to create lasting social change and eliminate gender based violence through shared goals of comprehensive sexual health education, action-oriented prevention and compassionate survivor support.

New programming beginning Winter Term 2024

CAPE Survivor Advocacy is hosting a Trauma-Informed Yoga class for survivors of gender-based violence. This class is led at a gentle to medium pace. All bodies and levels of movement are welcome and modifications will be offered. Limited yoga mats are available – please bring your own mat if possible.

The class is held on Mondays from 12-1pm. For location details and more information, please email Jocelyn Kerr.


Our advocacy team provides survivor-centered care, seeking to empower survivors by prioritizing their rights, and ensuring access to all of their options and resources. Advocates focus on centering how survivors define safety for themselves, the needs that they have identified, and providing support as they navigate their next steps. Our services are CONFIDENTIAL AND FREE to students, staff, faculty, OSU alumni and those impacted by a member of the OSU community.
