Raising Awareness About Sexual Assault 

Tragically, sexual assault is a widespread and systemic issue on all college campuses.  Being informed is empowering and enables you to be a resource to friends and colleagues.  Everyone has the right to live and learn at WSU, free of violence or the threat of violence. 

CAPS encourages all students to report sexual violence, but it is important to know that survivors are not required to report and can receive supportive services and information about their rights and accommodations without reporting.  The WSU Title IX Office website has more information

If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, it's never too late to get help.   WSU resources include Police (313 577-2222), CAPS, and the WSU Title IX Office.  For a non-WSU resource, call 800.656.HOPE (4673) or visit to chat anonymously one-on-one with a trained staff member.
