Survivor Resource Guide

This guide outlines services available to survivors who report, wish to report, or have experienced sexual violence. Reports of similar crimes such as stalking and cyber stalking, harassment, and other forms of abusive behavior can be responded to by consulting this guide and adapting it appropriately. This document will continue to be updated as offices and services change. Participants or various campus departments may be added or removed from the guide to meet the needs of our students.
