Minors on campus
Institutions of higher learning face increased accountability relating to the safety of minors on campus. As such, it is the Policy of Western Michigan University that all existing and future University programs and activities involving minors must be developed and administered so as to provide a safe and protective environment for participating minors.
Sexual assault or sexual abuse (University and surrounding community)
All individuals are encouraged to contact law enforcement and seek medical treatment as soon as possible following an incident that poses a threat to safety or physical well-being or involves potential criminal behavior. This is the best option to ensure preservation of evidence and to begin a timely investigative and remedial response.
The police can assist you in requesting a personal protection order. Emergency medical assistance and campus safety/law enforcement assistance are available both on- and off-campus. The University will help any individual get to a safe place, provide transportation to the hospital, connect an individual to law enforcement, and share information about on- and off-campus resources and options for resolution.
