April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month!
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.
Skidmore College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational, co-curricular, athletic, or other programs or in the context of admissions or employment. Skidmore College prohibits the crimes of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
If you have been sexually assaulted or have experienced gender-based misconduct, 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 survivors and to effect the attitudinal and behavioral changes necessary to eliminate sexual violence and gender-based misconduct from our campus community.
