Individuals who disclose that they have experienced sexual violence will be provided support services and will be treated with dignity and respect at all times by the University and its representatives. A person affected by sexual violence is not required to report an incident of or make a complaint about sexual violence under the formal complaint process of this Policy in order to obtain support and services, or in order to receive appropriate accommodation for their needs.
To assist in navigating the Policy, please see the high-level overview (one-pager) of how to formally report an experience of sexual violence.
Below are some community support resources that are available:
