Our campus message to survivors

We Believe You.

We believe you and believe in your power and strength to recover. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking and relationship violence are never your fault. 

You are in control and have the right to heal in your own way.

You deserve support on your path to recovery.  Faculty and staff are here to present options, not tell you what to do or determine what is right for you. 

Your power and identity matter.

Sexual assault and relationship violence can impact a person no matter their identity. Our identities (like our gender, sexual orientation, race, documentation status, and ability) can also change how we experience being a survivor of sexual and relationship violence and what supports we need. Your experience matters. 

We are a work in progress.

As a young campus in a state of development, we are learning and growing. We are developing resources and infrastructure to train faculty, staff, and students and support survivors in trauma-informed ways. We are still working to build a community that is responsive and inclusive of all survivors.

If you interact with someone or some process on our campus that leaves you feeling like you were not believed, seen, heard, or valued as an important member of our campus-community, then please know it is not your fault. You deserve better.
