Sexual violence is present in our community. Let's talk about it.

Discussing sexual violence, learning how to prevent it, healing from an assault, and supporting loved ones as they heal are all very difficult.  But you do not have to do it alone.  The Sexual Violence Prevention Education office has a variety of educational tools to help you start these conversations.  Don't see what you are looking for? Contact us and let us know how we can help you!

Know the facts. Protect yourself. Protect your community.

Experiencing sexual assault, or supporting a friend after they have experienced an assault, can be very overwhelming.  Often we are not sure where to go, what to do, or who to turn to.  We are here to help.  Explore this page to find answers to common questions, fast facts regarding sexual assault, and how to get involved in ending sexual violence at the University of Dayton.

Have a question? We have the answer.

Understanding the policies and regulations around sexual assault is easier than it first appears.  These policies contain important information, including acceptable and unacceptable behavior for members of the University of Dayton community, reporting options, and legal expectations of our faculty and staff.  Take a look!

Know your people. We're here for you.
