Care and Support

Involvement in an incident where sexual misconduct is reported has a significant impact on the reporting individual and the respondent. Whether you are a friend, RA, professor, staff member or parent, there are things you can do to support a person who discloses an incident to you. You can help by listening non-judgmentally and validating their experience, providing them with information about resources available to them and supporting their choices about the resources they may need.
