Emergency and Support Resources for Sexual Assault

At Lesley, we take sexual assault very seriously. It is against the law and against Lesley University's Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Violence policy to have sexual contact with someone who does not give their consent. The university takes steps to protect a complainant, providing support on campus and referrals for off-campus resources. if you would like a printable copy of the resources found on this page, download the Emergency and Support Resources - Sexual Assault (PDF).
