Campus Safety

423.236.2100

Campus Safety encourages any student, faculty, or staff member who has been sexually assaulted to report this incident to its office. From a safety and investigatory standpoint, the sooner a sexual assault is reported, the better. Even so, the University strongly encourages reporting at any time victims are ready to do so.

If Complainants report a sexual assault to Campus Safety, after the Complainants’ immediate needs have been attended to, they are interviewed by a member of the Campus Safety staff and asked to share their accounts of what took place. This conversation may take place in the offices of the Campus Services Building on Colcord Drive or at another space on campus the Complainants find more comfortable. Complainants may indicate a gender preference of the officer who interviews them. Complainants are asked to write down their report, but the officer may ask them additional questions to make sure all of the important details are recorded. The officer takes notes, and once these notes are typed up, victims are asked to review them for accuracy.

Also, upon receiving a report of sexual assault, Campus Safety alerts the campus and community that a sexual assault has occurred. The warning is general and will not specify names or other identifying information. Reports of sexual assault made to Campus Safety are also reported to the Title IX Coordinator, the Title IX Designee, and the vice president for Students Development. Complainants are also encouraged to report any sexual assault to the Collegedale Police Department; however, reporting a sexual assault to Campus Safety does not commit Complainants to pursuing this avenue.
