Survivor Services

Reporting options

Survivors of sexual violence have the choice of whether or not to report it. Survivors may report to the university, law enforcement, or both.

Medical care and forensic evidence collection (rape kit)

Time-sensitive information: After experiencing harm or assault, you may wish to seek urgent medical attention such as treating injuries, checking for injuries that aren't apparent, getting tested for STI exposure, and potentially collecting forensic DNA evidence that can be used for reporting. Some aspects of getting medical attention are time-sensitive. You always have the option to contact a confidential advocate for help.
