If you were sexually assaulted recently, you may want to go to a local hospital for a sexual assault evidentiary examination. It can be helpful to know that it’s very common for survivors to question the reality of their assault right after the incident, regardless of the circumstances.

For help deciding how to proceed after experiencing a Sexual Assault at the University of Iowa, you can contact the University of Iowa Sexual Misconduct Response Coordinator at 319-335-6200. However, please be aware that the Sexual Misconduct Response Coordinator may need to file an official report.
