Skidmore College is committed to promoting a campus environment where sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and exploitation are not tolerated, and where every member of the community is expected to do their part to prevent and address violence. The College also is committed to providing survivors and all community members affected by sexual and relationship violence support and avenues of redress as appropriate.  Sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking are violations of Skidmore College policy and crimes as defined by the state of New York.

If you have been sexually assaulted, we hope the information on this site will help you know that you are not alone, provide you with information to help you make informed choices, and support your recovery. For the Skidmore community at large, we hope this site promotes the compassionate and just treatment of student survivors and to effect the attitudinal and behavioral changes necessary to eliminate sexual violence from our campus community.

We acknowledge with thanks the following institutions that have permitted us to share with the Skidmore community information on this subject they’ve published for their own campus communities: Middlebury College, Bucknell University, Dartmouth College, and Vassar College.
