Sexual Misconduct Information

All sexual activity between members of the CSU community must be based on Affirmative Consent. Engaging in any sexual activity without first obtaining Affirmative Consent to the specific activity constitutes Sexual Misconduct and is a violation of this policy, whether or not the conduct violates any civil or criminal crime.

Sexual activity includes, but is not limited to kissing, touching intimate body parts, fondling, intercourse, penetration of any body part and oral sex. Women ages 18-24 who are college students are 3 times more likely than women in general to experience sexual violence. Females of the same age who are not enrolled in college are 4 times more likely (U.S. Dept of Justice, 2014).

The Student Health Service staff always tells the victim/survivor, “It was never your fault. We commend you for coming in for support.”

If a survivor chooses to see a clinician, they may request to be assessed for sexual assault injuries.

  • Clinicians may provide treatment within their scope of practice for a college campus. They will provide testing for sexually transmitted infections, such as: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV and Syphilis.
  • Clinicians cannot perform a forensic examination, but the University Police Department participates in a program called Sexual Assault Response Team, or SART. SART is comprised of a sexual assault investigator, a rape crisis counselor, and a forensic nurse. The SART exam and counseling are free of charge.
