College Catalog: Policy on Sexual Violence, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, And Stalking: M. Sexual and Domestic Violence Procedures

Anyone who has experienced sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking should do the following:

  • Safely find a place away from harm.
  • Call 911 or if on campus, contact campus safety and security/security.
  • Call a friend, a campus advocate, a family member or someone else you trust and ask her or him to stay with you.
  • Go to the nearest medical facility/emergency room. It is important to seek appropriate medical attention to ensure your health and well-being, as well as to preserve any physical evidence.
  • If you suspect that you may have been given a drug, ask the hospital or clinic where you receive medical care to take a urine sample. The urine sample should be preserved as evidence. “Rape drugs,” such as Rohypnol and GHB, are more likely to be detected in urine than in blood.
  • For professional and confidential counseling support, call the Virginia Family Violence & Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-838-8238. Help is available 24 hours a day.
  • You should take steps to preserve any physical evidence because it will be necessary to prove criminal domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, or to obtain a protective order.
  • Do not wash your hands, bathe, or douche. Do not urinate, if possible.
  • Do not eat, blow your nose, drink liquids, smoke, or brush your teeth if oral contact took place.
  • Keep the clothing worn when the incident occurred. If you change clothing, place the worn clothing in a paper bag.
  • Do not destroy any physical evidence that may be found in the vicinity of the incident by cleaning or straightening the location of the crime. Do not clean or straighten the location of the crime until law enforcement officials have had an opportunity to collect evidence.
  • Tell someone all the details you remember or write them down as soon as possible.
  • Maintain text messages, pictures, online postings, video and other documentary or electronic evidence that may corroborate a complaint.
