“I experienced sexual misconduct.What should I do?”

Go to a safe place

After experiencing sexual misconduct it is important to remove yourself from physical, mental, and/or emotional danger. Please go to a place where you feel safe. This could be a friend, spouse or RA’s room, Student Health and Wellness Promotion, or contact Campus Safety or 911.

Ask for Support

It is a victim’s choice whether or not to report an incident of sexual misconduct. However, it is important for victims to speak with someone who can provide them with their appropriate resources and options. Advocacy is an important source of support. Learn more here about advocacy.
