The College has made significant efforts to provide training and preparation needed to assist victims of sexual assault
Main Page Content
We have created a safe environment for victims seeking services, reporting incidents
and filing criminal reports. Sexual assault is an illegal act that may be punishable
through the criminal justice system and the College’s student conduct system.
The College will investigate all complaints of sexual and/or gender misconduct and will respond promptly, providing a supportive environment for students coming forward. The College at Brockport’s Code of Student Conduct has defined Sexual and/or Gender Misconduct to refer to a broad range of behaviors including but not limited to:
- Sexual harassment
- Non-consensual sexual contact
- Non-consensual sexual intercourse
- Sexual exploitation
- Dating violence
- Domestic violence
- Is the victim safe now?
- If not, call University Police at (585) 395-2222 if on campus or 911 if off campus. To contact the Brockport Police Department directly call (585) 637-1020. They are located at 1 Clinton Street in Brockport. Email the Brockport Police Department.
- Does the victim need or want medical intervention?
- If the victim wants an evidence collection exam, refer them to the SAFE Center (Sexual Assault Forensic Exam Center) at Strong West Hospital at 156 West Ave, Brockport - (585) 276-7200 or Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester at 601 Elmwood Avenue - (585) 275-2100.
- For treatment of injuries from the assault, or to receive STI, HIV and Pregnancy intervention, victims may also be seen at Hazen Center for Integrated Care. It is important to remember that not all injuries are immediately evident, so even going on a regular doctor visit will be important for a victim of assault.
- If the victim wants to collect evidence, rape kits can be done at Strong West Hospital or Strong Memorial Hospital Emergency Room. If the victim is thinking of having evidence collected, be sure to reinforce that they should save all evidence possible from the assault. Evidence is best when it is collected within 72 hours of the assault. The evidence, regardless of whether the victim presses legal charges, will be held in the hospital it was collected from, for 60 days in a secure area, and may be saved for a longer period of time.
- Does the victim wish to report the sexual assault to law enforcement?
- If the assault occurred on campus, contact University police at (585) 395-2222. If off campus, call 911.
- Victims may also file a proxy report if they wish to report the incident anonymously without pressing charges. Proxy reports can be taken by the Police and through RESTORE, by calling (585) 546-2777.
- Is the victim interested in pursuing campus conduct reporting and procedures? If so, they may contact Denine Carr JD at (585) 395-5066.
- The College at Brockport Counseling Center offers counseling to victims of sexual assault. Contact (585) 395-2414 during regular business hours to set up an appointment, Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm or walk-in appointments are available between 8-11am, Monday through Friday.
- RESTORE provides trained advocates who are available by phone and in person 24/7, to assist victims of sexual assault and sexual abuse. Call (585) 546-2777.
- Counseling at the College at Brockport and RESTORE’s services are free and confidential. None of the information revealed by the victim will be released without their permission. Victims are encouraged to utilize either or both services whether the assault/abuse occurred recently or in the past.
