Informal resolution: how would the university see the accused?

In terms of an informal resolution- if that was the victim's route, and everything was resolved this way, how would the university see the accused person? Like, would they still be seen as a risk or danger to other students? Or, since it was an informal resolution, would it not be viewed as extreme?


  • 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.

  • Highlight which university staff victims/survivors can report sexual violence to so they need only report once.
