Transcript of Illinois State Online Sexual Assault Training

Illinois State University is committed to the
of its students and the campus community. The University prohibits sexual assault/misconduct, dating/domestic violence and stalking and takes any allegations seriously.

You can find the University’s process for responding to these incidents at EqualOpportunity.IllinoisState.edu

We want you to be aware of issues and resources that can enhance your safety.

Sexual assault/misconduct
Approximately one in four college women and 6 percent of college men are victims of sexual violence.

Sexual and relationship violence can happen within the context of any relationship.

While we typically think about stranger assaults, well over 70 percent of assaults involving ISU students are committed by people you know.
No matter what you call it...
Sexual assault
Sexual violence
Sexual misconduct
...are all illegal/criminal acts.

Sexual assault/misconduct is sexual activity without consent.

It can be physical or non-physical.

It can involve oral, anal, or vaginal penetration, and touching
For further information, check out the University's Code of Student Conduct online.



So, what is CONSENT?
Consent is “knowingly and affirmatively” agreeing to engage in sexual activity. It cannot be implied or assumed.
Consent must be voluntary and cannot be compelled by coercion, force, threat, or deception.
An individual cannot consent when substantially impaired by any drug or alcohol.
An individual who is drunk CANNOT consent to sex, and sex without consent is rape!
How do I know if I have consent
You ask! Is this ok? Do you want to _____?

You listen and respect your partner’s limits.

You make sure your partner is sober.
Potentially dangerous situations
that could lead to sexual assault
Excessive use of alcohol
poses the greatest risk for sexual violence. When intoxicated, no one thinks clearly or accurately evaluates risks, and it is more difficult to escape a dangerous situation.
Accepting a drink
from someone you don’t know, drinking from a punch bowl, "jungle juice", and drinking games are very dangerous. Drinks are very easy to spike and it is impossible to know how much alcohol one is consuming.
Pressuring someone to drink creates greater vulnerability and shows a lack of respect for personal preferences.
Attempts to isolate an individual, separating one from friends and others, makes the person much more vulnerable.
Unwanted touching indicates that you are not being respected and your personal boundaries/limits are being ignored.
Excessive use of alcohol poses the greatest risk factor for sexual violence. More than 70 percent of assaults involve excessive use of alcohol.

Actions that threaten or endanger the health and/or safety of another
Unacceptable behavior
Attempting to control who one talks to, what they wear, where they go
Sexual and relationship violence thrive in silence!
Talk about it. Ignoring it doesn't make it go away.
Assistance in this process is available from the Sexual Assault Prevention and Survivor Services program.

The University's process for responding to incidents of sexual assault and relationship violence are available at
If you choose to drink alcohol, drink responsibly and know your limits.

Communicate sexual desires and limits directly.

Use a "sober buddy system." Go out and return home in groups. Agree that one person will remain sober, watch out for friends, and step in when needed.

Obtain sober consent for sex. Talk before you touch.

Make sure someone knows your plans—where you are going and who you will be with.

When in your room/apartment, lock your doors and windows.
What to do if you are sexually assaulted
Prioritize your safety. Get to a safe place, ask a trusted friend to stay with you, and call the police (911).

Seek medical attention from a hospital emergency room or Student Health Services. It is important to be treated for injuries, tested for sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy.
Although most university faculty and staff must report incidents of sexual assault and relationship violence for investigation, SAPSS and counselors are not required to report.
Know that what happened is not your fault. You are not alone.
Risk Reduction Strategies
What to do if you experience violence in a relationship
If you notice indicators of relationship violence in your relationship, contact Student Counseling Services for free and confidential assistance.

There can be an increased risk of violence and danger when the violent partner fears they are losing the relationship.

It is important to prioritize your own safety.

Let family and friends know of your concerns.

If you fear for your safety, consider obtaining an Order of Protection from the court. Assistance in obtaining this is available.

Student Counseling Services can help you develop a plan that prioritizes your safety, and discuss reporting options.

Remember, most faculty and staff are required to report incidents of sexual assault and relationship violence for investigation; counselors are NOT required to report.

We all contribute to creating the kind of campus community that is safe, accepting, and affirming of all individuals.
The impact of sexual and relationship violence extends beyond survivors. It impacts their friends, family, and community.
There are often others who heard or saw things that made them uncomfortable, but were reluctant to intervene. We need to ask ourselves, “if not me, who?”
By making a choice to speak up, intervene when it is safe to do so, enlisting the aid of others or contacting police, we can all have a powerful impact on the prevention of sexual and relationship violence.

Unwanted action that results in emotional/mental disruption of a person’s daily life or educational environment
It can be physical, verbal, emotional and/or sexual.
Verbal violence is often ignored in a relationship. When verbal and emotional abuse no longer result in the control desired, the abusive partner often moves on to more extreme forms of physical violence.

Isolating the individual from friends and family
Keeping tabs on the individual by asking where they are going, who they are with, what time they will be back, etc. Calling frequently to check in.
Putting the individual down, calling them names, ridiculing or embarrassing them in public
Pushing one to perform sexual acts that make the person uncomfortable
Checking a partner's cell phone for calls, messages, and texts
Moving too quickly in a relationship, talking in terms of an intense/serious relationship very early in the relationship
