Task Force

Counseling and Psychological Services, the Dean of Students, the Office for Women, Student Health, the Office of Equal Opportunity and IU Police have partnered to create a campus wide coalition to initiate and coordinate efforts to address sexual assault and intimate partner violence on campus.  The task force provides a forum for planning and coordinating primary prevention education for students, faculty and staff; articulation of victims’ rights; coordination of message and dissemination of information; and training for faculty and staff.  It has broad representation from stakeholders across campus and the community. 


What to Do

Respect: If someone tells you they have been sexually assaulted, believe them. Listen without judgment. Ask how you can help. 

Respond: If you see something, do something! Trust your instincts. Take the potential victim and yourself to safety.

Refer: Provide resources to the victim of the assault
