St. John's University is committed to providing confidential, nonjudgmental, and appropriate support services for all sexual assault survivors, regardless of gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, age, ability, immigration status, or whether or not they report the crime.
If You Are a Survivor of Sexual Assault
It is important that you understand that you are not at fault for the assault in any way. No one ever deserves to be assaulted, and persons who commit sexual assault do so out of a need to control, dominate, abuse, and humiliate.

Every survivor's experience of sexual assault is different and each survivor may react in many different ways.
