Sexual Misconduct Information
IF YOU BELIEVE THAT AN INCIDENT OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT HAS OCCURRED:
A student who has experienced an incident of sexual misconduct should seek help, support, and information immediately. There are many sources for information, assistance and support. If you have experienced an incident of a sexual misconduct you should consider the following immediate actions:
- Get to a safe place as quickly as possible.
- Consider notifying a member of the Sexual Misconduct Response Team, which includes campus Advocates, the Center for Sex and Gender Relations, and Campus Safety. Many of these resources have after-hours and emergency contacts.
- If you can, avoid showering, bathing, douching, urinating, or cleaning up in any way.
This will prevent the loss of valuable evidence, though evidence can still be collected even if you do. Do not wash any clothes, towels, or sheets that may contain evidence. Preserve all evidence in a paper bag (not plastic) or deliver directly to law enforcement.
- Don't blame yourself; this was not your fault.
- Utilize College and community resources for immediate and long term assistance.
- Go to Health Services or an area hospital (Saratoga Springs Hospital)
- Individuals are encouraged to seek medical attention as soon as possible after an act of sexual misconduct.
