How to Support a Student

Supporting a Student

Due to the role you play in the students’ academic and professional careers, they may share experiences of interpersonal abuse (sexual abuse/assault, intimate partner abuse, stalking, and sexual harassment) with you.

Here are some tips to provide support:

  • Thank them for trusting you.
  • If they are in immediate danger, call 911.
  • Inform the student about your obligation to notify the Title IX office.
  • Refer them to CAPE or other appropriate resources.

Feel free to contact the CAPE advocate with any questions, consultation, or general support
