Consent

Willing
:
Consent must be given freely, it can NOT be granted under psychological, emotional, or physical force, manipulation, persuasion, or threats.
What is going to happen if....
A survivor wants to call
TUPD?
A survivor wants to go to the hospital/have a SAFE exam?
The survivor is looking for accommodations?
The survivor does not want you to tell anyone?
If a survivor needs transportation to GBMC, TUPD or the Health Center can help with or without “investigating”

Request for classroom/academic accommodations

You cannot guarantee confidentiality, explain your obligation to report to the Office of Equity AND the commitment to maintain privacy.
When you share information with the Office of Equity (Title IX Coordinator)
It is unlikely that the university would follow up with you after receiving the report
The survivor can contact TUPD directly(410-704-4444). Only call on their behalf with their consent
Filing a report with police is not the same thing as “pressing charges”.
A TUPD officer will initially respond to the scene to gain additional information. They will also call BCPD
You may be asked to step out of the room. The survivor may request that you or another individual remain with them. Turnaround can come to campus as advocates.
SAFE = sexual assault forensic evidence (this is an evidence collection examination) [put in script and take off prezi?]]
The survivor may go on their own or with a support person to GBMC or Mercy Medical Center for an exam
The survivor can have an advocate with them throughout the process
Requests can be made for reasonable accommodations through the Office of Equity (Title IX Coordinator)
Accommodations may include:
Request for on-campus housing accommodations
Request for transportation accommodations
Request for a no contact order with the accused student
Federal law & TU policy require you to report the incident to the appropriate office (Office of Equity).
The student has the option to not respond to university reachout
You can still refer the student to appropriate confidential or anonymous resources
The appropriate office will reach out to the student (typically via email), offering resources, options for accommodations, and general information.
Student Conduct/Title IX Coordinator may reach out to you to make sure that all the appropriate reports were filed.
The student has a choice to meet with the University or to not respond.
Based on what information has been gathered, the University may still need to investigate and/or follow up with an accused student or other parties.
There is no timeline for students to report or meet with the University to discuss the incident
A federal law that
prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex
in any federally funded education program or activity.
If you suspect a student may disclose, inform them of your status as a responsible employee [language here?]
does this make sense for this audience?
take out for this audience?

ELAY
Tell someone directly that their words or actions are not acceptable. You can intervene directly without being confrontational or escalating a situation. You can say: "that person is too drunk to go home with you," "did you ask the person in this video if it was ok to share it?" or "stop asking them if they want to hook up, they already said no."
Create a distraction to diffuse an unsafe situation and help move people out of harms way. You can tell a joke, spill a drink, change the topic, or ask a random question to diffuse and distract from an escalating unsafe situation.
Ask someone else for help. Good resources include your RA, a trusted friend who feels comfortable intervening, or the police in an emergency situation. Trust your gut. If you don't feel safe directly intervening, get help.
