If you have experienced sexual violence, you are not alone.

Sexual violence happens to people of all genders, gender identities, and sexual orientations. Your safety is our primary concern. Below you will find some suggested steps to take after an incident.






You have the right to make a report to University Police, local law enforcement and/or state police or choose not to report; to report the incident to the University, to be protected by the University from retaliation for reporting an incident; and to receive assistance and resources from the University.
