Sexual Violence Prevention & Education

On April 16, 2019, Chancellor Jacqueline Moloney established a task force to study UMass Lowell's current policies and practices regarding sexual harassment.

UMass Lowell takes the safety and well-being of our campus community seriously.

If you, a friend or colleague are a victim of sexual violence your first step, after getting to a safe place, should be seeking and receiving the medical and mental health assistance.

If you have been sexually assaulted:

  1. Get to a safe place.
  2. Don’t change your clothes, shower or go to the bathroom. Find out how to preserve evidence.
  3. You are strongly encouraged to talk to a UMass Lowell professional staff member or contact UMass Lowell Police, 978-934-4911 or ext. 44911.
  4. You are strongly encouraged to go to Lowell General Hospital to be examined. Seeking medical attention at a SANE Hospital also is strongly encouraged. Lowell General Hospital is the closest SANE hospital in this area. The University Police will provide transportation in an unmarked car if you need assistance.

The most important thing is to get you the help and support you need.  Take a look at the Response Options chart (pdf) for additional resources.
