What to do if you have been assaulted
If you are not safe or need immediate help:
On campus: Call security (414) 847-3300
Off campus: Call 911
Seek medical attention as soon as possible after a sexual assault:
The Sexual Assault Treatment Center (SATC) at Aurora Sinai Medical Center, is accessible through the Emergency Room entrance. Staff there can address all issues including crisis counseling, injuries, STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) testing and treatment, pregnancy and the gathering of physical evidence, as well as referrals for further care. All contact with SATC staff is confidential. SATC can be accessed in person or by phone (414-219-5555) 24 hours a day. https://ahc.aurorahealthcare.org/services/sexual-assault/satc.asp
Refrain from changing clothes, bathing, eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. Do not go to the bathroom if possible. This is so that physical evidence can be collected and preserved. You do not need to decide at this time whether you want to press charges but if you save the evidence, it offers you more options in the future when you are better able to decide. The staff at SATC are trained to collect and save this type of evidence for you.
Marquette University Medical Clinic can also provide evaluation and treatment for injuries and STIs, as well as pregnancy testing. Marquette University Medical Clinic is open Monday-Friday.
Support at MIAD
There are people at MIAD who can help you make the decisions that are right for you. MIAD’s Victim advisors can provide information about MIAD and community resources, assist you in reporting the assault and support you through each step of the process.
