Seeking Support

Abusive sexual conduct by anyone is a threat to the entire University community. All students who believe another individual has personally violated them in a sexual manner should immediately report the incident to the Title IX/SaVE Coordinator, Student Grievance Resolution Officer, University Security personnel, and/or to local police.

Students are strongly encouraged to report all incidents that threaten the student’s continued well-being, safety, or security. University personnel will assist the student in notifying authorities, if requested.

Reporting sexual misconduct helps:

  • Protect the victim and others from future harm.
  • Apprehend the alleged assailant.
  • Maintain future options regarding prosecution.
  • Disciplinary action, criminal, and/or civil action against the perpetrator.

If you are raped or sexually assaulted:

  • Go to a safe place. Think safety first.
  • Preserve evidence. Do not bathe, shower, douche, change clothes or straighten up the crime scene.
  • Contact someone who can help. The police, campus security, a friend, campus staff or faculty.
  • Seek medical attention at a Hospital Emergency Room:
