What Should You Do if You Are Sexually Assaulted?
Safety in Numbers and Escorts
When studying late or leaving evening classes it is a good idea to walk with friends and classmates. There is always more safety in groups than a single person walking at night alone. If you feel uncomfortable and would like an escort to your vehicle or dorm room please feel free to contact your faculty member, the Campus Director or, in Elko, the Security Department.
If you have concerns about a single person please contact the Campus Director, Safety & Security Director or Vice President of Student Services/Title IX Coordinator to discuss the situation. (Click here for contact information)
Sexual Assault Policy
Great Basin College has a zero tolerance policy for any type of assault including sexual assault.
Anyone who believes they may be a victim of assault should contact the Police Department by calling 911 first. They should then contact Security or the Campus Director to respond to their location on campus. The Director of Safety & Security and the Vice President of Student Services/Title IX Coordinator must be notified either by notification of Security by the Campus Director or directly by the victim.
