Reporting Understanding Title IX
If you are harassed or assaulted
If you have been harassed or assaulted, UND has a number of resources available to support you.
What to do after an assault:
- Take care of your immediate needs
- Go to a safe place and call 911
- Call someone you trust, such as a friend, counselor or RA who can provide support to you and help you sort out the next steps.
- Avoid the destruction of evidence. Do not bathe, douche, change clothes or clean up in any way. If oral contact occurred, do not eat or brush your teeth. If you have already changed clothes, put the clothes in a paper bag to preserve evidence.
- Pursue medical treatment, if necessary. You can get emergency medical help at Altru Health System or non-emergency care at UND Student Health Services.
- A specially trained nurse at Altru can perform an examination to gather evidence. This examination is free of charge and won't be billed to your health insurance or your parent's health insurance.
- Even if you don't want to make a criminal report right away, any evidence collected can be stored until a later date.
- Consider reporting. You are not required to file a report to receive medical attention or assistance from UND and community resources.
