Become a SART volunteer
Apply by Friday, Jan. 18
Since 1992, the UM Counseling Center’s Sexual Assault Resource Team (SART) has been a vital resource for students, providings them a place to talk about sexual assault anonymously and find out their options. Every year, SART invites dedicated, warm, and empathic faculty, staff, and graduate students to serve as volunteers. Volunteers agree to be available 24/7 to answer calls received on the SART hotline (305-798-6666) for a full week, and typically serve at least one but no more than two weeks in a given semester, depending on their availability. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Audrey Cleary by Jan. 18 at 305-284-5511 or a.cleary@miami.edu and prepare to attend the training on Feb. 1. Learn more at miami.edu/sart

Have you updated your voice mailbox?
Last week, a new enterprise voicemail system by Applied Voice and Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) went live at UM's Gables and RSMAS campuses. This means if you had previously set up a UM voicemail, you’ll need to set up your voice mailbox again on the new AVST system. To learn more about the update and what it means for you, visit the UMIT site.
