Sexual Assault Primary Prevention, Intervention and Response
Counseling and Psychological Services, the Dean of Students, the Office for Women, Student Health, the Office of Equal Opportunity and IU Police have partnered to create a campus wide coalition to initiate and coordinate efforts to address sexual assault and intimate partner violence on campus. The task force provides a forum for planning and coordinating primary prevention education for students, faculty and staff; policies and procedures for student conduct; articulation of victims’ rights; coordination of message and dissemination of information; and training for faculty and staff. It has broad representation from stakeholders across campus and the community. For a current list of membership, click here.
In 2013, CAPS and OFW obtained a grant from the Indiana Campus Sexual Assault Primary Prevention Project, with funding to develop a primary prevention social media campaign on campus. This will be launched in the Fall 2013.
WHAT TO DO
If someone tells you they have been sexually assaulted….believe them. Listen without judgment. Ask how you can help.
If you see something, do something! Trust your instincts. Take the potential victim and yourself to safety.
Provide resources to the victim of the assault.
