Sexual Assault

"The sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, interferes with students' right to receive an education free from discrimination and, in the case of sexual violence, is a crime." 

- Department of Education and Office of Civil Rights Dear Colleague Letter April 4, 2011

Trinity University does not tolerate sexual assault in any form. There are caring faculty and staff at Trinity to support you if you have been sexually assaulted.

While sexual assault is a crime with a legal definition, there are many exploitative behaviors that may not be defined as assault, but which may result in disciplinary action. Sexual violence is a term that encapsulates many behaviors that could be sexually inappropriate, hurtful, coercive, or any sexual contact without consent.

What to do if you are sexually assaulted

Resources for individuals who have been sexually assaulted can be found at The Rape Crisis Center website.
