Sexual Assault

If someone you know is victimized through sexual assault, a number of resources are available to assist them:

If sexually assaulted, seek medical attention immediately.

  • Consider speaking with a friend or with a counselor available at the 24-hour Crisis and Support line at the Nashville Sexual Assault Center (1.800.879.1999).
  • Additional support can be provided for students by contacting Counseling Services at 931.540.2572.
  • Victims are encouraged to report incidents to the police even if they do not plan to prosecute. It is very difficult for the police or other community services to address problems that they are not aware that exist.
  • Awareness and risk reduction are 90% of avoidance.
  • Avoid mixing sexual decisions with drugs and alcohol.
