File a Report
The decision to report an assault is up to you. The most important thing is to choose the path that is most productive towards your recovery; for many survivors, just having their assault counted and on record is an important step in regaining the power they lost.
Prompt reporting of sexual assaults is strongly encouraged. Prompt reporting gives the college the best opportunity to stop sexual assaults, prevent their recurrence, and address their effects. Offenders can be apprehended and kept from repeating their actions.
Submission of the form below is a report to the Title IX coordinator of the college. The Title IX coordinator will follow-up with the reporter, after reviewing the report, to determine appropriate next steps.
About the Report
The Victim May Be Anonymous
Smith College uses a sexual assault reporting form to gather accurate information on about the incident on campus. All submitted reports will be reviewed and investigated, no matter how much information is provided. Reporters are encouraged to complete the form with as many details as they can. The more details provided, the better the college can respond. Requiring a minimal amount of general information, the form in no way requires the identification of the sexual assault survivor.
Is Not Legal Action
This report will be submitted to the Title IX coordinator of the college. Reporting a sexual assault or rape to Campus Police establishes and preserves evidence and officially documents the incident to ensure your legal rights are protected; it does not mean you must pursue prosecution. However, the report will support your case if you decide to prosecute in a court of law. If you wish to report a crime to Campus Police please contact them at 413-585-2490 or at extension 800.
