If you have experienced sexual misconduct such as, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual exploitation or stalking, the most important thing you can do is get to a safe place and find help and support. If you believe you or anyone else is in immediate danger, call 911 as soon as possible. Please see the UWO confidential resources listed below if you would like to talk over your decision to report or seek support services before reporting.

Most sexual misconduct is also a crime under Wisconsin state law. We encourage all UWO community members and guests to seek support and report any incident of sexual misconduct to help collectively create and sustain a safe, equitable, and inclusive campus. Please see the Report page for more information on reporting.

No one is alone at UWO. Sexual misconduct in any form can have a profound impact on a victim/survivor’s academic, social, working, and personal life. It can also affect their friends and family, other students, co-workers, and members of the university community. To combat this complex social problem, UWO provides a variety of support services and prevention programs designed to prevent sexual misconduct, provide information about what to do when an incident has occurred, and increase awareness of campus and community resources for support and response. Confidential and non-confidential resources are listed below.

Resources for Non-U.S. Citizens

Any victim of sexual violence, trafficking, or other crimes can and should seek help, despite their immigration or citizenship status. All people in the United States regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, ethnicity, or immigration status are guaranteed protection from abuse. Any victim of domestic violence – regardless of immigration or citizenship status – is encouraged to seek help. Please do not be afraid to report a crime or pursue immigration benefits due to concerns of continued abuse, deportation, other negative consequences, or because of not understanding U.S. law.

U.S. law provides several protections and specific benefits for legal and undocumented non-citizen victims of domestic and sexual violence in the United States. Most organizations provide confidential assistance to protect victims and their families. No one will be told that you are seeking help or immigration benefits, including your abuser, your family, or anyone else. Furthermore, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) must maintain the confidentiality of non-citizen victims applying for these federal immigration benefits.
