If you, or someone you care about, have been the victim of misconduct such as sexual assault, interpersonal violence, stalking, or harassment, we want you to know that you are not alone.

Staff in the RISE Office are available to assist as Process Advisors for students who have experienced an incident. These Advisors are available to assist students by explaining the process of reporting, making appropriate referrals, and helping a student better understand the processes and the options for them. RISE staff members and the Office of the Dean of Students can help you with remedies and resources, regardless of whether you choose to pursue investigation. You can also share this information with a friend that may be unsure of what to do next.
