Call a Friend

​​​​​​Contact a friend, family member or support person, tell them what happened and have them come to your location.

Seek Medical Attention

​​​​​​Getting medical attention is important for addressing the physical consequences of any type of sexual violence or physical assault, even if you do not wish to seek criminal prosecution.

If possible, seeking medical attention within 24 hours of a sexual assault is the most ideal for medical and prophylactic treatment, however evidence can be collected from the body for up to 120 hours after an assault, and from clothing and other items for much longer.


Evidence Preservation

After experiencing sexual misconduct, discriminatory, sexual or gender-based harassment, bias incident or a hate crime, preserving evidence is important to assist in criminal prosecution, an investigation, and/or obtaining civil orders of protection or no contact orders, even if you are undecided about what courses of action you want to pursue.

Confidential Resources

Confidential resources are those individuals who will not report any information to others without a release of information and provide support as well as an overview of options, resources, and referrals. Confidential resources will have to report if the person is a risk to themselves or others, or in the event that abuse to minors is being disclosed.

On-campus confidential resources include the Dyson Wellness Center advocate, counselors, and medical staff. Off-campus confidential resources include advocacy agencies, mental health care providers, health care providers, and emergency room staff.

Reporting Option Links

The right of individuals to report to law enforcement is supported, but the College also acknowledges that some individuals do not want to report their experiences with sexual misconduct or bias-related incidents/hate crimes to law enforcement. Any individual who would like to report to law enforcement can be assisted through the Campus Advocate (for sexual misconduct) or Campus Safety.
