Safety tips:
  • Get verbal consent from your partner, and don't assume you know what the other person wants.
  • Don’t feel obligated to do anything you don’t want to. “I don’t want to” is always a good enough reason.
  • Trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe, get to a safe place and call for help.
  • Listen to your partner. If you are getting unclear messages, stop.
  • Perpetrators are responsible for sexual assaults. Perpetrators take advantage of vulnerability and seek opportunities to commit sexual assaults.

It can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the University community. It is the duty of the administration to warn of possible "dangerous conditions" on or near the campus, and at affiliate organizations off campus; an "affirmative duty" exists to warn persons associated with the University of possible peril at the hands of some third party or parties.
