1.3.5: Sexual Assault Policy
If the victim agrees, Dial 911 immediately.

The Security Office will inform the Dean of Student Life and the University Counsel’s offices.
The victim will be asked if the victim wishes to speak to someone at the Rape Crisis Center, 502-581-7222, and will also be advised of the choice to file a report with the Louisville Metro Police, 574-7010.
Most sexual assaults on a college campus are never reported. Therefore, when informed of a sexual assault, it is vital that the appropriate actions are taken to protect the victim, the accused, and the University. The Sexual Assault Victims’ Bill of Rights lays the ground rules to be followed, but other measures must also be taken to comfort the victim and to preserve evidence of the assault.
