New York University is committed to maintaining a safe learning and working environment. Given this commitment, we take sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking seriously and have zero tolerance for them.

NYU has long had support services and highly trained staff in place to respond to reports of sexual misconduct. We encourage you to familiarize yourself and your student with our policy on Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence, and Stalking, as well as the services and resources we offer all students, by visiting our website at www.nyu.edu/sexual-respect.

In an effort to create and foster a community in which members value each other's rights in this area, we are asking all students to complete an online sexual misconduct education module called Think About It. This module covers areas of sexual misconduct prevention; bystander intervention; healthy relationships; consent; the impact of alcohol and other drugs on sexual interactions and misconduct; and how NYU responds to sexual misconduct within our community and offers support to students. Students will receive an email later this summer inviting them to participate in this online training module.

If you need help or have questions about the online training module, please contact sexualrespect.support@nyu.edu. If you need support or would like to access resources, please contact the Wellness Exchange at (212) 443-9999 or wellness.exchange@nyu.edu. We have also established local phone numbers to reach the Wellness Exchange around the world — whether you are in NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, or at an NYU global site. The Wellness Exchange Hotline is staffed by licensed mental health professionals, and is available to anyone in the NYU community 24/7, 365 days a year. Staff at the Wellness Exchange can provide immediate, confidential, and comprehensive support for all complainants and respondents of sexual misconduct. Crisis Response Counselors (CRCs) also are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year to provide support and can meet with students personally during an emergency to discuss their medical, mental health, and reporting options. The Crisis Response Counselor also can accompany the survivor to the hospital for a medical examination.

Please know that at NYU, the personal safety of all members of our campus community is our top priority. This is an issue that we believe demands our constant and sustained attention and we look forward to engaging the entire campus community in maintaining a safe campus environment now and in the future.
