I didn’t want to let him go free
My immediate response, if [a friend has been sexually assaulted], is to care for her and to report. I didn't want to let him go free. And the risk of being deported was there, but I was like, it doesn't matter, he deserves to be deported.
Emphasize the victim's right to decide whether they would like to report the incident after they have disclosed it to the university. Ensure the victim is aware of the formal and informal routes for reporting, including the option of reporting to the police. Clearly communicate any limits to confidentiality.
Address legal concerns specific to international students, including whether reporting sexual assault could impact the immigration and/or visa status of the complainant or respondent. These issues should be addressed both in the policy itself and in educational materials and information sessions.
