If you have been assaulted or harassed, it’s important to get support. Certain friends and family members may provide a needed sense of love, strength, and comfort. Students may have a trusted adult who could be helpful (such as a residence hall dean or director, academic advisor, religious leader, professor, or coach).
Cornell provides various resources for support including confidential service providers, other experienced advisors, and peer counselors who can be very helpful in helping with your concerns, questions, feelings, and healing.
