UMN Sexual Assault Response Protocol

The Sexual Assault Response Protocol details the many ways the University of Minnesota, TC supports victims/survivors of sexual assault who come forward to ask for help and/or report to seek consequences for those who hurt them. This protocol explains the professional and thoughtful steps and response strategies of many campus offices and professionals who offer victim/survivors help. As you contemplate what your options are, know your rights as a victim/survivor on campus with the help of the UMN Victim Rights guide.

Reporting Violence and Harassment at the UMN

There are many options when it comes to reporting incidents of violence and harassment. Aurora advocates have experience and can help you through all the information, steps, and processes whether you report to police, an academic or student program, a university disciplinary office, etc. Our goal is to support you and help you through the steps.

To learn official university policies on sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking or sexual harassment visit the University of Minnesota's official policy page.

Learn more about the process of reporting to the university by going to Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action via phone, in person, or online.

The Office for Student Conduct & Academic Integrity (OSCAI) also has information available about reporting sexual assault, sexual harassment, relationship violence and stalking.

If you'd like to file a police report with UMPD, MPD, or another law enforcement agency, contact Aurora. Advocates can meet you at the police station or arrange an officer to meet you at our comfortable offices to file a report.
