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.

Evidence Preservation


After experiencing sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, and/or stalking, preserving evidence is important to assist in criminal prosecution, a Title IX 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.

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 Title IX Coordinator also acknowledges that some individuals do not want to report their experiences with sexual misconduct to law enforcement. Any individual who would like to report to law enforcement can be assisted through the Dyson Wellness Center Campus Advocate or Campus Safety.
