There are a variety of resources on and off campus to help survivors of sexual assault and those who care about them. Many students find it helpful to contact one of the Advocates, as they can provide confidential assistance and help answer questions you may have about the other resources and options available.

If you have been sexually assaulted, it is very important to consider seeking medical attention. Specially trained nurses can treat any injuries that you may have, take steps to prevent pregnancy and STDs (within 72 hours of an incident), and help to preserve your rights and options for any decisions that you may choose to make at a later time (within 96 hours of an incident).
