If you've experienced sexual and/or relationship violence, what happened is not your fault. You always deserve to be safe and respected. You may be experiencing a wide range of feelings, which are all valid.
We invite you to use this website to navigate and choose the resources you want to use. Regardless of what you decide, there are many people at Stanford University who are committed to helping students, faculty, and staff. As a first step, consider speaking to a confidential counselor at the Confidential Support Team (650-725-9955) to help you navigate your options; they are available 24/7, including while the campus is physically closed due to Covid-19.
COVIDE-19 Update: We are still here to help! Emergency medical and police services described on this website continue to be available. Other Stanford services described on this website are available during the county's "shelter in place" through the remote options of zoom, phone, or by email. Please reach out to us whenever and wherever you are.
Stanford’s sexual harassment and sexual violence policies continue to apply during remote learning. Any harassment or discrimination that occurs within a program or activity of the university, including all online instruction, is subject to university policies. Stanford will also respond to concerns in which harassment or discrimination happens outside of university matters where that conduct is so severe as to cause significant harm within the university community or to a community member.
