SECURITY NOTICE: Two incidents of sexual assault reported

Two incidents of sexual assault were reported to Campus Security Authorities (CSA) this past week.

In the other incident, a female student reported that she was asleep in a residence hall when she was sexually assaulted by another female student.

This security notice is being issued to remind students that:

  • Sexual assault does not just occur between strangers.
  • Sex without consent is sexual assault.
  • Sexual assault is a crime.
  • Not responding to sexual advances is not giving consent.
  • Consent is actual words or actions indicating a freely given agreement to engage in sexual activity.
