Your Options

A black, orange, and white flowchart describing options for survivor support at Lewis & Clark.

Advocacy and Health

  • Confidential Advocates offer nonjudgmental support and provide options for all L&C community members.
  • Survivors may want to consider preserving evidence (clothing, communications, pictures, evidence on the body) if they decide to report.
  • A Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE) can be conducted at local hospitals within 120 hours (5 days) of an assault.
  • Counseling Service offers free therapy, crisis counseling, and psychiatry appointments for all L&C students.


  • If there is a current danger or if you are afraid someone might be harmed, call Campus Safety at 503-768-7777 (on campus) or 911 (off campus).


  • Reports can be made to L&C’s Title IX Coordinator by phone, email, or the online form.
  • Reports can be made off campus to law enforcement at the Portland Police Bureau.
  • Reports can be made to any nonconfidential employee, aka responsible employee, who will notify Title IX.

On-Campus Arrangements

  • Remedies can be made for survivors (academic, housing, escorts, etc.) to ensure their access to educational opportunities is not interrupted.
  • No contact orders can be issued reciprocally if the survivor and respondent are both L&C community members.
