Johnson & Wales University takes a proactive stance to educate its student body regarding issues of sexual assault and methods of prevention. Students receive sexual assault education at various times.
In the event of an assault, the single most important thing a rape victim can do is tell someone, be it the police, a friend, a community-based rape crisis center or a counselor. Don’t isolate yourself, don’t feel guilty, don’t blame yourself, and don’t just ignore it. Rape, whether by a stranger or someone you know, is a violation of your body and your trust.Remember, a JWU professional staff member (Res. Life, Campus Safety Officer, Nurse, or Advisor) is available 24/7; for after hours emergencies, call Safety & Security at 305-892-7011 or 911.
