The Office of the Sexual Misconduct Response Coordinator can assist you in locating resources. You can find numerous ways to access support from the options below.

Confidential Resources (24-hour assistance)

Research suggests that individuals impacted by sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, or stalking who work with a counselor or advocate heal more quickly and experience less postsecondary trauma. This page describes confidential resources, including 24-hour advocate hotlines, chatlines, counseling services, and educational services.

Medical Assistance

Individuals who have experienced sexual assault may choose to get a free medical forensics exam with a specially trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE). An individual can have an advocate from RVAP with them for support during a medical forensic exam.

Supportive Measures

With or without a formal complaint, individuals can receive support to address how an incident or experience may be interfering with their work or access to education programs or activities.

Explore Resolution Options

Complainants have multiple options for resolving their concerns. In general, you have a say in how your report is handled - not every report leads to a formal grievance process.
