Information for Faculty and Staff to Assist a Student in the Event of a Sexual Assault

Nationwide, acts of sexual violence are under-reported; victims of sexual assault are more like to suffer academically, and from depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, alcohol and drug abuse, and to contemplate suicide. It is important that the Rutgers community have information and resources readily available to address these issues.  The University Office of Academic Affairs, in consultation with UBHC, the Office of Public Safety and U.H. Emergency Department has developed a document titled, “Protocol and Resources for Faculty and Staff When Responding to a Disclosure of a Sexual Assault by a Student.” which also has useful information for victims is available here.
