What are my rights?


Our Commitment to Survivors:

  • We will listen.
  • We will give you space to talk to us without fear of judgment, shame, or repercussions.
  • We will treat you with dignity.
  • We will not assume your gender identity.
  • We will use your correct pronouns.
  • We will not assume your sexual orientation.
  • We will own our mistakes.

Survivors may face challenges when making decisions about what options feel right for them.  The important thing to remember is that even when things feel difficult, you have rights!

  • You have a right to compassionate and confidential support and assistance.
  • You have a right to evidence collection and medical care with all costs covered by the state.
  • You have a right to seek academic, residential, work-related, or safety accommodations from the university (known as interim measures, which can be coordinated with a Title IX Coordinator).
  • You have a right to obtain a no contact order. 
  • You have a right to file a report when and if you decide to.
