A Place for All

November 11, 2022

I strongly support the statement by President Pollack and Vice President Lombardi and share the same feelings as many of you about these crimes. Members of our community, especially those affected by the recent reports of sexual assault, are encouraged to seek support from one of our confidential resources. Students (undergrad, grad and professional) can call CAPS for a consultation or appointment, or attend scheduled walk-in hours for Let’s Talk. Faculty, staff and postdocs can contact the Faculty & Staff Assistance Program for support. Any community member may contact the local Advocacy Center or the National Sexual Assault Hotline.
We all have a role to play in ending sexual violence. Learn what you can about sexual assault and other forms of misconduct. Work for positive change by challenging your own and others’ attitudes and behaviors. Become an engaged bystander: sometimes telling a potential perpetrator their behavior isn’t cool can stop a risky situation. If you learn of an incident, help share resources for self-care and support; encourage reporting. Additional information and resources are available on Cornell’s SHARE website.
