Cornell’s top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our entire university community and visitors to our campus. Reporting acts of sexual harassment or assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking allows the university to take immediate steps to investigate the incident(s) and enhance the safety of our community.
In accordance with New York State law, as a reporting individual, you have the right to make a report to university police, local law enforcement, and/or state police or choose not to report; to report the incident to Cornell; to be protected by Cornell from retaliation for reporting an incident; and to receive assistance and resources from Cornell.
