Reporting Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct

Preserving Evidence

After a sexual assault, it can be difficult to know how to react. Below are important steps to help guide you through the process:

  • First and foremost get to a place of safety.
  • Do not shower, bathe, wash, change clothes, comb hair, eat or drink before a physical exam.
  • See “Seeking Medical Assistance” below for information on where to go for an exam, typically within 120 hours of an assault.
    • Physical evidence is important to both a CBU investigation, as well as a police investigation.
  • Note that even if you showered or washed, evidence may still be collectible and medical conditions can be treated, even after 120 hours.
  • Electronic evidence is very important for the outcome of an investigation.
    • Save and/or screenshot any relevant text messages, social media posts, photos, snapchats, voicemails or emails.
  • Give the evidence obtained to the Title IX investigator or Safety Services for use in a university investigation.
