What to Do If You Experience Harassment, Sexual Misconduct or Sexual Assault

If an act of sexual misconduct occurs, you are likely to have many concerns, including physical health and safety, emotional and mental well-being, medical issues such as sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy, and, for some, interpersonal relationships.  Another common concern may be understanding the process for responding and reporting the act. 

If you have been a victim of sexual assault or sexual harassment, contact:

  • University Police Department:  361-825-4444
  • File an online complaint:  File a Complaint
