At Marquette, we know that 80% of student victims of a violent crime go to their peers to get help and talk about the incident and do not seek out further services.

A victim could easily come to you rather than other offices like the Counseling Center, Public Safety or Student Health Services.

Here are a few suggestions on how to respond should a friend confide in you about an assault.

       In every sexual assault, the perpetrator is 100% responsible for their actions.    

       You may think she made a poor choice, but no matter what choice they made

       they did not deserve or ask to be sexually assaulted.
