If you have been a victim of...

  • Sexual assault

  • Sex- and gender- based discrimination

... We are here to help.

Heidelberg University is very concerned about incidents of gender-based or sexual misconduct, and acknowledges that while each person experiences and response in differing ways, there are a variety of formal and informal options for support. Please review the information pertaining to your options for support, assistance, and reporting so that you can make an informed decision based on your personal needs. Your needs may change over time, so please also know that you may choose to utilize different forms of response at times.

If you have experienced any act of sexual misconduct, our first concern is for your safety and well-being. Heidelberg offers on-campus resources to assist students who may have been affected by sexual violence or sexual misconduct. Additional services are available off-campus through the local community. Individuals are encouraged to utilize any and all on-campus and community resources that may be of assistance to them.
