DePauw University has a broad-based and comprehensive response system for students who have experienced harassment or an assault.
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.
Public Safety Office - Public Safety Officers investigate reports of sexual misconduct that are then forwarded to the Assistant Dean of Students 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 an emergency or the DePauw Public Safety Office at (765) 658-5555 for non-emergencies.
