The resources aren’t out there

Participant 1: I haven't seen it [the policy] or heard about it since I've been here, but I guess I didn't look for it [...] it didn't feel readily available.
Participant 2: Same, I haven't seen it. I mean, I've seen little posters saying like "victimized' or "sexual assault," but it's never really been out there for students. For a student who was assaulted, I don't think the resources are out there in public enough for them to be like, "okay, this is what I should do."
