For the survivor/victim, sexual violence is often a traumatic event. Trauma is a response to something that is emotionally painful and distressing, and overwhelms an individual's ability to cope. Trauma is subjective, and individuals may experience a wide range of emotions. There is no one way to respond to trauma. 

If you or a friend has experienced sexual violence, the college has a range of resources that can assist you in understanding options for next steps, including:

  • Obtaining medical attention
  • Survivor-centered emotional support
  • Safety planning options
  • Information regarding reporting options

The Campus Advocate can provide support as a confidential resource while also helping you navigate any medical, legal, or Title IX processes. A student does NOT have to report their experience to Title IX to receive support services from the Campus Advocate.

View the Support and Reporting Options and Procedures and Medical and Legal Options pages for more information.

Remember that aside from designated confidential resources, all CC employees are mandatory reporters (including RAs). This means that if you mention identifying details to an employee who isn't a confidential resource, they are legally obligated to report to the Title IX coordinator. If you don't want to start a Title IX process or aren't sure yet, speak to confidential resources like the Campus Advocate, a Chaplain, or the Counseling Center
