Reporting Sexual Assault

How to report sexual assault.

Sexual assault is defined as any involuntary sexual act in which a person is threatened, coerced, or forced to comply against her/his will. The Department of Public Safety and Transportation has established policies and procedures relating to reports of sexual assault.

Where applicable, the rights of victims and the University’s responsibilities for orders of protection, ‘no-contact’ orders, restraining orders, or similar lawful orders issued by a criminal, civil, or tribal court or by the University are maintained on file and are strictly adhered to.

Adelphi University offers comprehensive services to ensure the well-being of members of the University community. Any individual who believes that she/he is a victim of sexual assault should report such assaults to public safety, any appropriate campus authority, health services, or the counseling unit as follows:

Location On Campus
Off Campus
Garden City Campus Call Public Safety #5 or 3507 or 3511 from any campus telephone Call 911
Hauppauge Center Call 631.300.4367 or 516.237.8605 Call 911
Manhattan Center Call 212.965.8340 Call 911
Hudson Valley Center Call 845.471.3348 Call 911

All efforts should be made to preserve evidence that may assist in proving that the alleged criminal offense occurred or may be helpful in obtaining a protection order. Any victims of sexual assault ideally should not douche, wash, use the toilet, or change clothing prior to a medical exam. Remember, get to a safe place and await police assistance and/or public safety. A victim of sexual assault should then obtain necessary medical treatment. Students may notify police as well as Adelphi Public Safety, who will assist students in notifying the police if requested. However, notification to the police is not required. Confidentiality will be protected to the extent permissible by law as required by the Campus SaVE Act.
