UC San Diego does not tolerate sexual assault, sexual misconduct or sexual harassment. The University encourages anyone who has been sexually assaulted or subject to other forms of sexual misconduct or harassment to report the incident to University officials.

The remainder of this email provides general information about preventing and reporting a sexual assault and is not necessarily related to this incident.

• Receive affirmative consent from your partner before engaging in sexual activity. Consent is voluntary and it must be given without coercion, force, threats or intimidation and can be withdrawn at any time.

• Perpetrators may attempt to use alcohol and/or drugs to facilitate a sexual assault. Alcohol or drugs is never an excuse for choosing to violate another person.

• There are a number of drugs that may be added to beverages with the intent of altering the consciousness or incapacitating a person without their knowledge. These drugs are particularly dangerous when combined with alcohol, and often produce amnesia, leaving a victim unclear about what occurred afterward. These drugs can facilitate criminal activity, most often acts of sexual misconduct or sexual assault.

• Ignorance of the law or of University policy concerning sexual assault, sexual misconduct and sexual harassment is never a defense.

• Sexual assaults are never the fault of the survivor, and keeping UC San Diego safe is a community responsibility. You can help prevent sexual assaults by identifying common behaviors that often precede sexual assault, and taking action if you see those behaviors happening. Recognizable red flags include seeing someone who is attempting to separate an intoxicated individual from their friends, or continuing to pour drinks for an individual who is clearly beyond their limit. You can help by attempting to reconnect someone who is intoxicated with their friends, or agree to call a CSO to escort that person home.

The UC San Diego Police Department encourages anyone who believes that they have been a victim of a sexual assault (or is the friend of someone who has been a victim of a sexual assault) to immediately contact local law enforcement. On-campus, the UC San Diego Police Department can be reached at (858) 534-4357.

Survivors of any form of sexual assault are encouraged to seek confidential support at UC San Diego’s CARE at the Sexual Assault Resource Center (CARE at SARC), which is located at the Student Services Center, Room #500. CARE advocates are available 24 hours a day at (858) 534-5793.
