Sexual Violence Resources

Welcome--Corsairs Care!

Responding to interpersonal violence is hard, whether you're the person who has been harmed or you are trying to help a friend. The topics of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking are not openly discussed, even though they frequently occur. Whatever your connection - whatever may be bringing you to this website - you are not alone. We are here to assist you. We all play a vital role in making UMass Dartmouth a respectful and safe community. When seeking help, the individual you speak with will:

  • Listen
  • Communicate that they believe you
  • Let the survivor decide what they want to talk about
  • Will not make decisions for the survivor 
  • Will not ask accusatory questions
  • Encourage the survivor to seek medical attention
  • Encourage the survivor to get help on and off campus
