Oregon State University joined a national sexual violence education and prevention effort in September 2014 to dramatically change the way we think about and respond to sexual violence. The “It’s On Us” campaign raises awareness and brings the nation and the higher education community together to stop sexual assaults from occurring on university campuses.
We all share responsibility to create a campus environment where sexual violence will not be tolerated. The first step is to raise awareness and hold everyone accountable for stopping assaults, supporting victims, and creating and maintaining a culture of respect and non-violence. It’s on each of us.
If you have been a victim of sexual assault, know someone who has, or want to be more informed, review the services below for access to assistance.

Emergency is open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, and staffs Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) who provide forensic evidence collection (SAFE exam). It is recommended that a person going for exam call ahead to lessen wait times as the SANE staff is on-call during off hours. An exam must be completed within 84 hours of the assault if you plan to file a police report at some point, results can be stored for a later date.
