Reporting sexual assaults is a difficult process for many, and often times for the survivor. Some people report as part of their healing, others report to bring the attacker's name to the attention of the College, and still others report to prevent future incidents from happening. Whatever the reasons, it is a courageous step - one that is 100% the survivor's choice to take.
The following people are reporting resources for our community:
- Campus Living, both Student and Professional Staff
- Counseling Center
- Dean of Students Office
- Director of Health Promotion (Donna Haygood-Jackson)
- Health Services
- William & Mary Police (the survivor has the option to report to the police and ask them to investigate or not)
A survivor can visit one of the above offices or people, who will in turn file a report here on behalf of the survivor (by clicking on the report form labeled General Student Welfare Concern). It requires the faculty or staff member to use their wmuserid and password, so it is not anonymous for them, but they don't have to include the survivor's name and details.
