Earlier this semester, the Consortium Assault Services App, or CASA, was released to students in the Five College Consortium. The new mobile app is a collaborative project involving Judd Liebman ’16, the college’s Counseling Center and a private technology firm named Last Call Media, which has developed websites and apps for other colleges and private organizations.

The purpose of the app is to consolidate and simplify information and guidance resources for victims of sexual assault as well as bystanders.
