Sexual Misconduct Policy, Section II: Resources
This page is incorporated into policy, but will be updated and amended as contact information changes. Please also refer to the resources on our student-focused webpage, here: https://www.lclark.edu/healthy-relationships/
There are many resources available on campus and in the surrounding community. As detailed below, there are Confidential Resources that by law cannot share information without the consent of the individual seeking assistance. There are also a variety of College resources that will be discreet and private, but are not considered confidential. These resources will maintain the privacy of an individual’s information within the limited circle of those directly involved in assisting the individual or resolving a formal complaint.
A. Confidential Resources
There are several legally-protected confidential resources available as designated below. These confidential resources will not share information with the College or anyone else without the individual’s permission.

SMYRC provides mental health counseling to sexual minority youth 23 and under. Services include assessment, individual treatment, groups, couples, and family therapy.
B. Confidential Medical Resources
A medical provider can provide emergency and/or follow-up medical services.
A medical exam has two goals: first, to diagnose and treat the full extent of any injury or physical effect (including prevention of sexually transmitted illnesses and pregnancy) and second, to properly collect and preserve evidence. There is a limited window of time (within 84 hours) following an incident of sexual assault to preserve physical and other forms of evidence. Taking the step to gather evidence immediately does not commit an individual to any particular course of action. The decision to seek timely medical attention and gather any evidence, however, will preserve the full range of options to seek resolution under this policy or through the pursuit of criminal prosecution.
On campus, the Student Health Service can provide medical care; however, they are not equipped for forensic examinations. The following local health care facilities offer Sexual Assault Forensic Exams (SAFE):
