If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault, contact The Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance to speak with a confidential advocate. Advocates are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 848-932-1181.


After an act of sexual violence, it is important to take steps to ensure your emotional and physical health. You should consider going to a place that you feel secure and comfortable. If you believe you or anyone else is in immediate danger, call 911 as soon as possible.

Once you are safe, contact someone you trust to be with you for support. This could be a friend, family member, or someone on campus.

The medical centers on campus provide medical assistance, testing for STDs and preventative medication. They also will examine you for any injuries and do testing for pregnancy if that is a concern of yours. The medical center staff will keep all information you share with them confidential.

If you feel you require immediate medical attention for injuries or wish to participate in evidence collection, you may choose to go to one of the following local emergency rooms. If you would like to talk with an advocate prior to making a decision about medical attention, contact the The Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance at 848-932-1181.
