▶ Victims of Sexual Crime

Victims of sexual crimes can receive confidential assistance through local medical and psychological professionals in the area. Please be aware that many sexual assaults/rapes involving college students are 'acquaintance rapes' or 'date rapes.' Victims of on-campus crimes have the right to choose counseling, medical treatment, prosecution and reporting of their case through the college reporting system and/or the off-campus court system. Victims also have the right to refuse to report the crime without reproach from any college personnel. It is important that you preserve as much evidence as possible to aid in successful prosecution.
