- Sexual Violence Resource Booklet
- Student Training
The university is committed to creating an environment that encourages victims of sexual misconduct to come forward and report their concern. Every effort is made to safeguard the identities of students who seek help and/or report sexual misconduct. Be aware that different individuals that you may contact for assistance following an incident of sexual misconduct will have different responsibilities with regard to confidentiality, depending on their position.
Under state law, some individuals can assure the confidentiality of the victim. This includes counselors, health care providers, spiritual/religious counselors, and certified victims’ advocates. In general, however, other university employees cannot guarantee complete confidentiality, unless specifically provided by state law. The university must balance the needs of the individual victim with its obligation to protect the safety and well-being of the community at large. Depending on the circumstance of the alleged incident, a campus safety alert may be posted throughout the campus. These alerts never identify victims or assailants.
A sexual misconduct experience is most often an emotionally disruptive event. It takes time to come to terms with such a major stress. In addition to support that may be found in family and friends, the following agencies have professional counselors that can be of assistance, provide further information on the subject of sexual misconduct, and assist with the healing process.

Both students and non students can file a complaint against an OSU student that alleges a violation of OSU's Code of Conduct has occurred. These complaints are filed through the Student Conduct Education and Administration. Violations of OSU's Code of Conduct include sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and stalking. The Code of Conduct provides for sanctions up to and including suspension of a student in cases where violations have occurred. The code of Conduct requires that complaints be filed within 180 calendar days of the alleged violation.
Additionally, Student Conduct Education and Administration can issue a "No Contact Order" between parties. This prohibits any contact between the victim and the accused for a specific period of time. Students are able to gain accommodations without filing a formal complaint.
Student Conduct can also assist students in making alterations to living arrangements, class schedules, on-campus work schedules, transportation, and other interim accommodations which are necessary to promote safety following an allegation of this nature.
