Safety and Security: Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence, and Stalking
These web pages provide an overview of SAIC's policy on Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence, and Stalking adopted in accordance with the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, or Campus SaVE Act, itself enacted as part of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013.
The Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence, and Stalking Policy addresses important issues, including:
- Reaffirming SAIC’s commitment that sexual assault, relationship violence (including domestic violence and dating violence), and stalking are unacceptable and not tolerated at SAIC.
- Defining “sexual assault,” “relationship violence,” “domestic violence,” “dating violence,” and “stalking.”
- Encouraging victims to report these incidents to the police and/or to Campus Security
- Providing useful suggestions on:
- What to do if you are the victim of sexual assault, relationship violence, or stalking
- Warning signs of abusive behavior and how to avoid potential attack
- What to do if someone you know is at risk of becoming a victim
- Providing details on the on- and off-campus resources available to victims
- Describing SAIC’s education and training programs
- Detailing the SAIC complaint procedures available if an alleged offender is a member of the SAIC community.
At SAIC, we take Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence, and Stalking very seriously and are committed to ensuring the health, wellbeing, and safety of all of our community members.
