Overseas Urgent & Non-Urgent Help


If you've experienced sexual assault, relationship violence, and/or gender-based harassment or discrimation while traveling overseas, 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. Regardless of what you decide, there are many people at Stanford University who are committed to helping students, faculty, and staff.  

Differences in laws, administrative processes, medical care, cultural and social norms, and attitudes vary around the world.
