Sexual Assault


Resources such as Safety Escorts are available on campus to help prevent crime. Rape Aggression Defense is a self-defense program for women based on teaching simple techniques to improve personal safety. UNI Police Officers act as instructors - both for academic and physical portions of the course. It is an opportunity to learn simple techniques that will allow you to avoid danger when possible or escape as a last option.


Anyone who is a victim of sexual assault may report the assault using the online form to anonymously report the sexual assault. Your email address will not appear in the message header. Completing an anonymous reporting from does not initiate an investigation or a criminal or university complaint.
