Sexual Assault, Dating and Domestic Violence and Stalking

Everyone has the right to be in relationships (family, friends, work, intimate partner) that are safe and respectful. We want the CSB/SJU communities to be:
  • Communities with healthy, caring relationship and sexual attitudes and practices.
  • Cultures that reflect civility, respect, and non-violence.
  • Communities that conceptualize intimate activity as an individual choice, where yes or no is a respected response.
  • Communities that understand intimate activity between people needs to be mutually consensual without the undue influence of alcohol or other drugs, pressure, force, threat, manipulation or intimidation.
  • Communities that are ready, willing, and able to intervene in high risk situations.
  • Communities that support victims and work to understand how sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, and stalking happen here.
 

Are you a victim or survivor?
Navigate your path to healing.

You are not alone.
It is NOT your fault.
Your feelings are valid.
You are DESERVING of healing.

 
 
 

Friends and Family
How do you support a victim/survivor?

Find help for your loved ones and yourself as a secondary survivor.

A secondary survivor is someone who knows someone close to them whom experienced sexual violence, dating/domestic violence, or stalking. This could be your child, sibling, spouse, significant other, parent, coworker, or friend who was victimized. You have been affected, too.

 

Defining the Issues
Increasing Understanding

If you have been a victim of sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, or stalking and need immediate assistance, you have options:

  • You can pursue safety measures that do not require a formal report of the incident.
  • You can report on and/or off campus.
  • You have a right to heal from the traumatic incident using supportive resources.

Throughout the sexual misconduct complaint procedure, the complainant and respondent are encouraged to utilize the support and resources of the Counseling Center, the Dean of Students, and an Advisor of their choosing. The Dean of Students of the respective students involved in the complaint serve as a primary point of contact and resource throughout the process.
