If you suspect that you or one of your friends has been slipped a date-rape drug or has been assaulted, immediately seek medical attention (Yes) and contact law enforcement. It is the victim’s decision to contact law enforcement in the event of an attempted or completed sexual assault. It is important that the victim seek medical attention and be provided resources for mental health and victim support.
Victims of sexual assault may make confidential reports to the YMCA, Safeline, licensed mental health professionals, or clergy acting in their professional capacity. Under Title IX, Oklahoma City University has specific obligations when it becomes aware of attempted or completed sexual assault of its students. If a faculty or staff member becomes aware of attempted or completed sexual assault of an OCU student on campus or at an off-campus University affiliated event, they MUST report the incident to the Title IX Coordinator.
The University will respond immediately to ensure the student is not subject to further harassment and the assault is investigated, prevent its reoccurrence, and address its effects. Because a Title IX investigation is different from a law enforcement investigation, even if a police report is filed, the University is independently required to investigate the assault.
The University’s Title IX Coordinator is Joey Croslin. Visit OCU’s Title IX resource page http://www.okcu.edu/hr/titleIX/ for more information about your rights under Title IX and resources for victims of sexual assault.
Date-rape drugs impair the victim’s decision-making skills, are usually used in order to aid in physical and sexual assaults, and could result in death.
Also, if you believe that you have been given a date-rape drug or have been assaulted, report this incident to any officer of the hosting organization, to the Risk Management Committee. You may report the incident to an officer of the organization hosting the event or a member of the organization’s risk management committee; however, these individuals are required to report the incident to the University’s Title IX coordinator.
Giving someone a date-rape drug is a criminal offense and a serious threat to the safety of OCU LAW students.
It is imperative that all incidents be reported in order to prevent this from happening in the future. The University encourages students to report any incident of attempted or completed sexual assault to the University’s Title IX coordinator or a responsible employee. Our primary concern is the safety of our students and that the victim is provided immediate medical attention and mental health and victim support resources. Additionally, the University takes very seriously its responsibility under Title IX to investigate the assault, prevent reoccurrence, and address its effects.
All incident reports will be confidential unless legal action is necessary. The University respects the confidentiality of victims of sexual assault; however, while the University will take great care to keep information about the victim confidential at the victim’s request, it cannot guarantee confidentiality. See more about confidentiality in the University’s Policy Concerning Actions that Constitute Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Violence, and/or Retaliation.
