UCPD would like to remind the campus community about the following safety tips:

  • Rape and sexual assault are never the fault of the survivor. It is the behavior of the perpetrator that is wrong.
  • 80% of sexual assault and rapes are perpetrated by someone known to the survivor, and on college campuses 90% of survivors know their attacker.
  • Sexual assault and rape can happen to people in all contexts, including marriage, dating relationships, friendships, child-parent interactions, employer-attendant relationships and stranger interactions.
  •  If you are the victim of a sexual assault and wish to file a police report do not shower or wash your clothing worn during the assault.
