Tell Someone

Telling someone you trust about what happened can help you feel validated and can get you the support, guidance, and referral if you need them. Telling someone doesn't mean you have to make a formal complaint.

Individuals may disclose an incident of sexual violence or misconduct to a trusted member of the college community to receive support and referrals to resources. Most people who experience sexual violence will often tell a trusted friend first. Students can also talk to the following services who are trained to provide support to students and student employees.
