Reporting Crimes of Sexual Nature
The University of Mississippi Department would like to encourage anyone who has been or becomes the survivor of a crime of a sexual nature to seek assistance as soon as possible after the incident. Resources exist that are designed to provide both physical and emotional support and counseling for sexual assault survivors. Regardless of the decision to pursue an investigation into the incident by law enforcement, we strongly encourage sexual assault survivors to report such incidents to law enforcement and seek out the other mechanisms of support that are available, regardless of where the incident occurs.
