Rights and Options

Sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, and stalking are against the law and against Brandeis University policy. Below you will find links to the different policies and laws that might apply to an experience you or a loved one had. We hope that understanding these policies and laws might help you decide if you want to report and to whom you want to report. Usually, you can report to both the school and to law enforcement, but that doesn't mean you have to. We are here for you if you want help making that decision.

Brandeis University Policies

Brandeis has multiple policies that prohibit sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence, and stalking by and against our community members. Which policy comes into play often depends on who was involved — students, faculty, staff, or campus visitors. Below are links to the policies under which you might be interested in filing a report. An Advocate from PARC would be happy to help you with questions about these policies or support for filing.
