Sexual Assault, Dating and Domestic Violence and Stalking

Everyone has the right to be in relationships (family, friends, work, intimate partner) that are safe and respectful. We want the CSB+SJU communities to be:

  • Communities with healthy, caring relationship and sexual attitudes and practices.
  • Cultures that reflect civility, respect, and non-violence.
  • Communities that conceptualize intimate activity as an individual choice, where yes or no is a respected response.
  • Communities that understand intimate activity between people needs to be mutually consensual without the undue influence of alcohol or other drugs, pressure, force, threat, manipulation or intimidation.
  • Communities that are ready, willing, and able to intervene in high risk situations.
  • Communities that support victims and work to understand how sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, and stalking happen here.

Friends and Family
How do you support a victim/survivor?

Find help for your loved ones and yourself as a secondary survivor.

A secondary survivor is someone who knows someone close to them whom experienced sexual violence, dating/domestic violence, or stalking. This could be your child, sibling, spouse, significant other, parent, coworker, or friend who was victimized. You have been affected, too.
