Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (S.A.N.E.)

In the event that an individual is the victim of sexual assault or sexual violence, the physical safety and emotional well-being of the person is of primary importance. A victim may have been physically injured in a number of ways, may have been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease, and/or may be at risk of impregnation. The College strongly encourages any person who has been the victim of sexual assault/violence to seek immediate medical attention from the nearest hospital emergency room.

Additionally, if an assault has occurred very recently, there may be physical evidence present that can be collected. Although the collection of physical evidence does not require a victim to pursue criminal or civil charges, preserving evidence allows a victim to make the decision to do so in the future. If a victim is assaulted, he/she/they should not shower, change clothing, or brush his/her/their teeth. The decision to seek medical attention and gather any evidence will remain confidential. Local medical resources include the following:
