The Student Conduct and Community Standards office acknowledges how difficult it can be for anyone who experiences unwanted sexual contact or sexual harassment to make a disclosure. If you are an OSU student and are a survivor of unwanted sexual contact/sexual harassment or are involved in any other form of misconduct brought about by another OSU student or students, you are encouraged to disclose the incident.

A safety plan is a practical guide that helps lower your risk of being hurt by your abuser. It includes information specific to you and your life that will help keep you safe. A good safety plan helps you think through lifestyle changes that will help keep you as safe as possible on campus, in the residence halls, and other places that you go on a daily basis.

Examples of a safety plan include having the number for Public Safety readily accessible on your phone, and making sure people know where you are and when you are returning.
