Safety tips:

• Get verbal consent from your partner, and don't assume you know what the other person wants.

• Don’t feel obligated to do anything you don’t want to. “I don’t want to” is always a good enough reason.

• Perpetrators are responsible for sexual assaults. Perpetrators take advantage of vulnerability and seek opportunities to commit sexual assaults.

It can be assumed that conditions that continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the University community. It is the duty of the administration to warn of possible "dangerous conditions" on or near the campus, and at affiliate organizations off campus; an "affirmative duty" exists to warn persons associated to the University of possible peril at the hands at some third party or parties.
