1 is 2 Many Sexual Violence Awareness
Join the OSU Center for Health Sciences in its stance that 1 is 2 many and its effort to maintain a safe environment where all members of the campus community can live, learn and be successful.
The OSU Center for Health Sciences takes acts of sexual violence and sexual harassment seriously. The following information, consistent with U.S. Department of Education Title IX guidance, provides details on the university response, resources, and remedies to sexual violence. The university hopes that you will help us in our efforts to maintain a safe and productive environment for all members of our community to live, learn and be successful by uniting as a community committed to ending sexual violence and sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of gender discrimination that are not tolerated at OSU-CHS. The university strongly encourages victims to report all acts of gender discrimination. Additionally, this booklet explains the process of filing a formal complaint with Student Conduct as well as with OSU-CHS Security. Please be aware that even if an individual chooses not to file a formal complaint, interim measures or actions by the university such as changing academic schedules may be taken to provide safety for the victim in the educational setting.
In an effort to comply with the Violence Against Women Act and the Office for Civil Rights federal guidelines, all students, faculty and staff are required to complete online training on sexual violence prevention.
If you are a victim of sexual violence, you are not alone and are in no way responsible
for your assault.
If you, or someone you know, has experienced a sexual assault or sexual misconduct, safety is of the utmost importance. You may take the following steps to ensure your safety:
- Call 911 immediately if you believe you are in danger.
- Get to a safe place or call a supportive friend.
- Call the confidential OSU Center for Health Sciences Victim Advocate at 918-200-5218.
- Call the confidential local 24 hour Rape Crisis Line at 918-743-5763.
- Do not shower, bathe, douche, change or destroy clothes; do not eat, drink, smoke or chew gum; do not take any medications. Preserving evidence for possible criminal prosecution is important.
