DePauw University has a broad-based and comprehensive response system for students who have experienced harassment or an assault, with resources on campus and within the community.
DePauw University has a number of on-campus resources available to students; however, we recognize that sometimes students feel more comfortable pursuing services from resources that are not located on campus. A comprehensive list of campus and community resources can be found below.
Sexual Assault Survivor Advocates (SASA) - SASAs are staff persons who have been trained in sexual assault response and resources. A SASA is someone who can present all of the options available. The SASA is available to support students in crisis as well as refer them to various resources. A SASA may be contacted directly at (765) 658-4650 or reached by calling Public Safety Dispatch at (765) 658-5555.
Title IX Office - Title IX complaints can be filed with the DePauw University Title IX Coordinator, Renee Madison, or with the Title IX Administrators, in person in the Office of the President, by phone at 765-658-4914 or via email. Additional information about Title IX is available here.
Public Safety Office - Public Safety Officers investigate reports of sexual misconduct that are then forwarded to the Title IX Administrators for review of violations of the campus Sexual Misconduct Policy, and to the local prosecutor for review of criminal charges. All officers have received specialized training in sexual misconduct investigations. You may also wish to report to another Law Enforcement Agency and an officer can assist you with making contact with another agency. Call 911 if there is an emergency or the DePauw Public Safety Office at (765) 658-5555 for non-emergencies.
Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) - After a sexual assault, a student may contact Student Health Services directly or may be referred by the Public Safety Office, Counseling Services, a SASA or other Student Life offices. The staff at Student Health Services are trained to offer caring, confidential services and to consider the emotional and medical needs of the survivor/victim. Our medical staff includes specially trained sexual assault forensic examiners who provide comprehensive care to sexual assault patients. A SANE provider may be reached by calling (765) 658-4555 or after hours by calling Public Safety Dispatch at (765) 658-5555.
Women's Center - The DePauw Women's Center serves as a resource for students, faculty, staff, and the Greencastle community interested in acting on behalf of women's issues at DePauw. Sarah Ryan is the Director of the Center and she may be reached at the following number (765) 658-4173 or email.
