On Campus

Colleges and universities must afford victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights under the Jeanne Clery Act and Title IX.

Some of these rights include:

  • Survivors shall be notified of their option to notify law enforcement.
  • The accuser and the accused have the same right to have others present during the campus judicial process.
  • Both parties shall be informed of the outcome of any disciplinary proceeding.
  • Survivors shall be notified of counseling services.
  • Survivors shall be notified of options for changing academic and living situation.

For more information about these rights or for assistance, contact the Clery Center for Security On Campus.
