SASSC (Students for Alternate sexuality: Safety, Support and Consent) is a support and information group on campus for anyone interested in or practicing kink and/or polyamory and related sexualities.

While SASSC is a group that is open to all interested in attending, the content delivered will be specifically aimed at exploring aspects of alternative sexuality and the safety and practice of dynamic modes of sexual behavior.
