Crime Prevention Tips:

  • Survivors of crime are never at fault for their victimization. It is the perpetrators of these crimes who are responsible for their actions that make our campus less safe.
  • Sexual contact without consent, with or without additional physical injury, is a serious crime.
  • If you see someone in need, there are ways you can safely intervene, including by being direct when safe and able, creating a distraction, or by delegating to others when help is needed.
  • When walking alone, consider walking with your phone in your hand.
  • If you feel threatened or uncomfortable in regards to your safety, please call 911.
  • Consider planning ahead to utilize the CATS Late Night free shuttle service between 5:30PM-3:00AM M-F, and 9:30 PM-3AM Saturday-Sunday. Rides can be scheduled by contacting 740-593-4040 via text or phone.
  • If you or someone you know is a survivor of sexual assault, resources are available for help. For a list of confidential and non-confidential campus or community resources, please visit:https://www.ohio.edu/equity-civil-rights/Resources.cfm
