Did you know that the Campus Sexual Assault (CSA) Study found 13.7% of undergraduate women had been victims/survivors of at least one completed sexual assault since entering college (http://www.nij.gov/nij/topics/crime/rape-sexual-violence/victims-perpetrators.htm)? Furthermore, 77% of rape victims/survivors were known to their attackers, and 90% of acquaintance rape victims/survivors did not report the attack to police (By the Numbers: Sexual Violence Statistics). Sexual assault can happen to anyone and anywhere. It impacts women, men, and children. You are not alone.
At Northern Illinois University, Victim Advocacy Services is dedicated to advocating for and supporting ALL student victims/survivors or any student who has been impacted by sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, or stalking. There are many resources available on campus and in our community to help victims/survivors or anyone impacted through the healing process.
