Sexual Assault Response

If you think someone has been sexually assaulted…… act SMART!!

Safety

In cases of rape or sexual assault, the College's response is based on several critical variables:

  • The safety of the victim
  • Medical concerns/needs of the victim
  • Legal and campus conduct interests of the victim
  • Counseling interests of the victim

College staff will provide support services and intervention for students who have been sexually assaulted, including helping to identify medical, police, campus conduct, and counseling assistance on and off campus. Upon request, assistance will be provided in changing academic schedules and living arrangements, when alternatives are reasonably available.

Medical attention or intervention

If the victim wants an evidence collection exam refer them to the SAFE Center (Sexual Assault Forensic Exam Center) at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester or United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia.

For treatment of injuries from the assault, or to receive STI, HIV and pregnancy intervention, victims may also be seen at the Hazen Health Center.

Report

The sooner you can report the incident to the police the better. If you are on campus you can use a blue light phone or call (585) 395-2226 for connection to University Police. If you are off campus call 911. Police cannot investigate the incident as a crime unless you file a formal report. Reporting a crime initiates an investigation but does not obligate you to pursue criminal
prosecution.

Students may choose criminal prosecution, a referral to the student conduct system, or both.

Members of the campus community may report criminal incidents to:

  • University Police at (585) 395-2226
  • Office of the Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs at (585)395-2137
  • Office of Student Affairs at (585) 395-5990
  • Student Conduct Coordinators at (585) 395-5197 or (585) 395-5190
  • Student Health Center at (585) 395-2414
  • Office of Residential Life/Learning Communities at (585) 395-2122
  • Counseling Center at (585) 395-2207
  • Helpline (585) 395-2796

Victims of a crime can also make a voluntary report on a confidential basis. Reports of this nature are filed with the University Police for information purposes only, but there is no formal investigation.

The Rape Crisis Service (off campus) will also take a "proxy report" for which information about the incident is taken and submitted to the police agency with jurisdiction over where the crime was committed. The victim's name is not on this report. To contact the local Rape Crisis Service call 1-800-527-1757.

Talk

The College at Brockport Counseling Center has a counselor who specializes in sexual assault and abuse. Contact 395-2207 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 8am-5pm.

The Rape Crisis Services provides trained advocates who are reliable by phone and in person 24/7, to assist victims of sexual assault and sexual abuse. Call 1-800-527-1757.

Both services are free and confidential. Victims are encouraged to utilize either or both services whether the assault/abuse occurred recently or in the past.
