Test of Title IX Resources 1/22/16

This is a test of the Title IX Resources. No incidents have occurred.

If you have information about this crime, please call the Stanford University of Public Safety at (650) 329-2413.

Stanford University does not tolerate sexual assault, sexual misconduct or sexual harassment. The university encourages anyone who has been sexually assaulted or subject to other forms of sexual misconduct or harassment to report the incident to university officials.

The information about this incident is being reported to you in accordance with the Clery Act. The remainder of this email provides information about preventing and reporting sexual assault.

? Ignorance of the law or of university policy concerning sexual assault, sexual misconduct and sexual harassment is not a defense.
? Receive affirmative consent from your partner before engaging in sexual activity.
? Perpetrators may attempt to use alcohol to facilitate a sexual assault. Statistically, the majority of reported sexual assaults occur while one or both parties are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Alcohol or drugs may impair one?s ability to judge whether or not consent has been given, but it is never an excuse for choosing to violate another person.
? There are a number of drugs that may be added to beverages with the intent of altering the consciousness or incapacitating a person without their knowledge. These drugs are particularly dangerous when combined with alcohol and often produce amnesia, leaving a victim unclear about what occurred afterward. These drugs can facilitate criminal activity; most often acts of sexual misconduct or sexual assault.

If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, or if you aren’t sure whether you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, there are a number of resources available to you at Stanford to inform you of your options and to support you in whatever path you choose to take in addressing the incident.
