If you have experienced a sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, stalking, or other forms of sexual misconduct, USU offers services and options to help you navigate the healing and reporting processes.

Ensure Your Safety First

Find a place you feel safe from further harm. If you are in immediate danger, contact the police:

Call 911 from your cell phone or 9-911 from a campus phone for emergency help.
Call USU Campus Police for non-emergencies: 435-797-1939.
USU Police will provide referrals to police departments for USU students and employees across the state.

Contact a Confidential Advocate

Trained advocates are available through USU's Sexual Assault and Anti-Violence Information (SAAVI) office and CAPSA in Logan. Advocates will help you navigate your options, seek medical attention, get a sexual assault forensic exam, receive counseling, file a police report, or report to the university.

Get Medical Attention

If you are not a Logan campus student, you can visit the Statewide Campuses resource page to learn more about local medical care options.

Preserve Evidence

If you are a Logan campus student or employee, for a sexual assault forensic exam, please go directly to Cache Valley Hospital to receive care from a certified Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. 

If you are not a Logan campus student or employee, you can visit the Statewide Campuses resource page to learn more about local options for receiving a sexual assault forensic exam.

In order to preserve evidence, please try not to bathe, shower, use the restroom, change your clothes, comb your hair, or clean up. If you receive a sexual assault forensic exam, certain information must be given to police according to Utah law, but you are not required to pursue an investigation. You will also be provided with treatment for injuries.

Report the Incident to USU

Federal educational law and USU policy prohibit sexual misconduct by any employee or student. Regardless of when or where an incident occurred, you can report it to the Title IX Coordinator in the Office of Equity. USU investigates accusations to determine whether a policy violation occurred, and holds those who violate university policy accountable.

The Office of Equity will keep your experience as private as possible, but may share some information with USU employees necessary to investigate the incident or provide you with services. The university can also help you access supportive measures to help you succeed in school or your job, including no-contact orders on campus, academic accommodations, or changes to on-campus housing, class, or work schedules. The Title IX Coordinator recommends you utilize an advocate to support you throughout the Title IX process.

Even if the perpetrator is not connected with USU, you can still get help. USU prohibits retaliation by employees and students against anyone who provides information about a policy violation.

USU's Amnesty Policy excuses students who report sexual misconduct from facing discipline for a violation of the student code involving drugs and alcohol. The health and safety of our community is our primary concern, and we want to remove barriers to reporting sexual misconduct or sexual violence to USU's Title IX Coordinator. For example, if you witness or experience a sexual assault and report it to the Title IX Coordinator, you will not get in trouble for a student code violation such as underage drinking or having alcohol on campus.

USU Title IX Coordinator: 435-797-1266 | Old Main 161, Logan

Report to Police

Sexual violence causes a great deal of emotional trauma, and USU Police officers are sensitive to the needs of those reporting. If you request they not initiate an investigation, they will honor that request as much as possible.

As part of the university, USU Police forwards all reports of sexual misconduct to USU's Title IX Coordinator. You can pursue a police investigation and the university's Title IX process at the same time.

USU Police: 435-797-1939 | 800 E. 1250 N., Logan
