Safety Information 

No one deserves to be sexually assaulted, stalked or victimized in any way. Sexual assault is illegal, a violation of University policy, and 100 percent the responsibility of the perpetrator. With this in mind, Sacramento State suggests the following tips for keeping our community safe and reducing personal risk.
What You Can Do to Help Stop Sexual Violence in the Community
      Be an active bystander. If you see something that doesn’t seem right, intervene if you can do so safely, and report the incident to campus authorities.
      Don’t engage in any behavior that may be considered sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or any other form of violence.
      Sexual contact requires mutual affirmative consent. Affirmative Consent means an informed, affirmative, conscious, voluntary, and mutual agreement to engage in sexual activity. An incapacitated person (for example, a person who is intoxicated by drugs or alcohol) may be incapable of giving consent.
      Never use force, coercion, threats, alcohol or other drugs to engage in sexual activity.
      Remember, “no” means “No!” and “stop” means “Stop!”
     Don’t mistake submission or silence for consent.
What You Can Do to Help Minimize Your Risk of Becoming a Victim
      Trust your feelings; if something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.
     Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings. 
      Clearly communicate limits to partners, friends, and acquaintances.  
      Learn all you can, and talk with your friends. Help them stay safe.
      Report incidents of violence to law enforcement and campus authorities.
      Program the Sacramento State Police Department’s dispatch number, (916) 278-6000, into your phone.
      Learn the location of the nearest emergency “blue” phones on your walking routes through the campus.
      Utilize the Hornet Night Shuttle, (916) 278-7260, or contact the Sacramento State Police Department for an escort when on campus at night.
      Never be afraid to make noise if you are attacked; yell, scream, and try to attract attention. The last thing an attacker wants is to have someone take notice.
