Anyone who experiences a sexual assault or other sexual misconduct is strongly encouraged to seek immediate assistance.
- Seek safety and obtain support—Remove yourself from the area if you feel you are in danger. Call a friend, advocate or family member to help you.
- Seek medical attention within 24-48 hours of the assault. It is important during this time that you do not change clothes or shower. If you do change clothes or shower, please still consider seeking medical attention and take the clothes with you in a paper bag (do not use a plastic bag as evidence may deteriorate).
- Report the sexual assault. It is always up to the victim/survivor when to report and to whom. For information on how to report confidentially, to a responsible employee (faculty, staff or student leaders/employees—such as RAs or TAs) or to a Title IX Response member please visit the How to Report page.
