– Be respectful of yourself and others. Make sure that any sexual act is OK with your partner, and remember that consent is an active process, not the absence of a “no.”
-If you feel uneasy, go to a safe location and call a friend or the police. When your safety is at risk or you need a safe escort on campus, contact University Police at (336) 758-5911.
-If you notice a situation that seems unsafe for another person, intervene if it is safe to do so or call for support.
-Remember that the majority of sexual assaults are perpetrated by someone the survivor knows. Someone can feel that they are in a safe place with safe people and be sexually assaulted.
