If you experience sexual misconduct…
Regardless of when or where the incident occurred, it is never too late to speak with a support resource about your options.
The University encourages all individuals to seek assistance from a medical provider and/or law enforcement immediately after an incident of sexual misconduct. This is the best option to ensure preservation of evidence and to begin a timely investigative and remedial response. The University will assist any University community member to get to a safe place and will provide transportation to the hospital, coordination with law enforcement, and information about the University’s resources and complaint processes.
There is a limited window of time (typically 72 to 96 hours) following an incident of sexual misconduct to preserve physical and other forms of evidence. Taking the step to gather evidence immediately does not commit an individual to any course of action. The decision to seek medical attention and gather any evidence will remain confidential and preserve the full range of options to seek resolution through the University’s resolution process and/or criminal action.
If you experience an incident of sexual misconduct, consider the following actions:

These resources can provide guidance in making decisions, information about available resources and procedural options, and assistance to either party in the event that a report and/or resolution under this policy is pursued. Individuals are encouraged to use all available resources, regardless of when or where the incident occurred.
Talk with the Title IX Coordinator or a Title IX Team Member about your options
Saint Francis University’s Title IX Coordinator or Title IX Team Member will help review your options for next steps and link you to support resources. You have advocacy at each step in the process to set the pace and make your own decisions about how best to proceed, except when there is an immediate threat to the community or a minor is involved.
