Title IX

Support Services

If you have been sexually assaulted there are multiple resources on and off campus to provide you with support, information and options about decisions that are right for you. Please see below for both confidential support services and reporting options. The Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinator can assist you with accommodations, interim measures and referrals whether you choose to report the names of the parties involved or not. If you prefer you may call the Title IX Office and ask for information or assistance without sharing your name or details of the incident unless you choose to report.

It is never too late to ask for support and consider reporting options.

How to Help a Friend

Support
Talk to your friend and let them know that you have noticed a change in their behavior and that you are there to support them. If your friend chooses to tell you about their experience, this person has made the choice based on trust. You should be supportive, non-judgmental, and listen. What they experienced was not their fault.

Believe
The most supportive step you can take for a friend is to believe them. Take the information seriously, but remember that it is not your job to assess the situation or investigate the facts.

Refer
HWS has many support resources available for its community members. HWS can confidentially share resources and information with you in order for you to relay this information to your friend.

Care For Yourself
Counseling services are also available for the person supporting a survivor. The process of supporting a survivor may be stressful for you and having someone you can talk with confidentially can help you stay balanced.
