Sexual Assault Response

In order to be consistent, supportive and ensure the victim receives services, resources and options, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Task Force developed this document to aid faculty and staff in their support of sexual assault victims. Not only is it our ethical responsibility to respond in a comprehensive and supportive way, it is our legal responsibility.
