After a sexual assault, it is extremely important you seek medical attention as soon as possible — preferably within 72 hours — because you could be injured internally as well as externally by the attack. A prompt medical examination will test for pregnancy, STDs, and HIV. A medical examination can secure valuable evidence that can be used later should you wish to have the assailant prosecuted. Do not drink, bathe, douche, brush your teeth, change clothing, or comb your hair. It's only natural to want to do these things, but you may be destroying evidence you will need if you decide to prosecute at a later date. Put all clothing, bedding, and other evidence in a paper (not plastic) bag. In the course of your medical examination, this evidence will be collected by the hospital staff.
Title IX Coordinator
The University has designated a Title IX Coordinator to provide you with assistance and support, and to monitor and oversee overall compliance with laws and policies related to sexual violence. Your campus Title IX Coordinator is available to explain and discuss your right to file a criminal complaint; the University’s relevant complaint process, and your right to receive assistance with that process, including the investigation process; how confidentiality is handled; available resources, both on and off campus; and other related matters.
