I want her to fight
The first thing I will tell [a friend who comes to me for advice following sexual assault] is that she has to be strong. First, we must go to a clinic to get proof- crying and being sad about it is not going to help the situation in the long run because I definitely want her to fight. I don't want her to be victimized, I don't want her to be quiet about it, I don't want her to be sad. I want her to fight the person that did this! I want the person to pay for it
Promote SANE nurses as supporters for victims/survivors. Ideally, this would happen in the context of a formal partnership with SANE nurses, which includes 24/7 availability of SANE nurse services on campus.
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.
Describe possible legal and institutional consequences for respondents found to have engaged in sexual violence. Provide indication of the range of consequences likely to follow a range of policy violations.
Provide students with information about what can serve as evidence of sexual assault for the purposes of a university investigation. This information should appear in the policy itself and in educational materials about the policy.
