Preserving Evidence

Sexual Assault

All victims of sexual assault have a right, under Michigan law, to have a forensic medical examination and evidence kit collected up to 120 hours (5 days) after the assault in order to preserve any evidence of the assault. The forensic exam will be administered by a registered nurse who has received advanced training to provide care and treatment to sexual assault victims.

Resources and Other Assistance

The University and local community provide many resources and other forms of assistance to those who have experienced sexual violence, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, and stalking.

Confidential University Services
The university offers a variety of free confidential advocacy, support and counseling resources to help you understand your rights and options so that you may seek the help that you need and want.

Academic, Housing, Transportation, Employment, & Other Protective Measures

In addition to the advocacy and support resources noted in this resource guide, the university also has
resources to help those who have experienced sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, or stalking obtain
reasonably available protective measures. These measures are available regardless of whether the person who requests them files a complaint with the university or through the criminal justice system.
