Sexual Assault Recovery

UT Dallas provides confidential help for students who have experienced sexual violence. Students may visit the Student Counseling Center in Room 4.600 of the Student Services Building during business hours to schedule a sexual assault consultation or counseling appointment.

Consultation

Consultations are available for support and information, as a student decides what to do next after a recent assault.

Consultations for an assault that occurred within the last five days will be seen as soon as possible. Other assault consultations will be scheduled within one week of contact with the Student Counseling Center. If a student is in crisis, the student should inform a staff member at the front desk of the center.

Counseling

Counseling is available to help survivors work through any feelings they may have following a sexual assault. Counseling for all assaults will follow the SCC procedure to be scheduled for the next available appointment. For more information, call 972 883-2575.

Emergency After Hours

For sexual assault emergencies after business hours, please call the 24-hour rape crisis hotline at 972-641-7273. You will be connected with a sexual assault advocate from the Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center. If you are in Collin County, you may choose to call the Turning Point hotline at 800-886-RAPE.

If you are in danger or need immediate medical attention, call 911.

Preserving Evidence

If the sexual assault has occurred within the last 96 hours, students may choose to go to a hospital emergency room to receive a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE). The exam is free and is performed by a specially trained nurse. A police report is not required in order to receive the exam, but the results will be kept in a safe place for possible future use.

To Make A Report

Counselors in the Student Counseling Center encourage students who have been sexually assaulted to report the event to University authorities, but it is not required.

  • To report to the UT Dallas Police: 972-883-2222 (911 in case of an emergency)
  • To report to local law enforcement: 911
  • To report sexual misconduct to the University: 972-883-2218, James Dockery, Title IX Coordinator, or Brandi Davis, Deputy Title IX Coordinator*

* Students who have been sexually assaulted have rights under the Title IX Act. UT Dallas does not tolerate sexual violence and works to hold violators accountable. Contact the Title IX Coordinator to discuss concerns or file a complaint. See utdallas.edu/titleIX for more information.
