Reporting Sexual Violence

Sexual violence is an intolerable intrusion into the most personal and private rights of an individual, and is prohibited at Minnesota State College Southeast. The college is committed to eliminating sexual harassment and violence in all forms and will take appropriate action against any individual found responsible for acts in violation of this policy.

Sexual violence includes a continuum of conduct that includes sexual assault (rape), non-forcible sex acts, dating and relationship violence, stalking, as well as aiding acts of sexual violence.

Victims of sexual violence are also encouraged to report incidents to local law enforcement and to contact area support services for counseling and health care (see Resources below).

To File a Sexual Violence Report

You may file a report of sexual violence anonymously or with your name. You may report an incident at any time, but are strongly encouraged to report promptly in order to best preserve evidence for a potential legal or disciplinary proceeding.
