For Survivors of Sexual Assault/Violence, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking
I. Seeking Medical Assistance & Preserving Evidence
The College encourages all victims of sexual violence to seek immediate assistance from a medical provider for emergency services, including treatment of any injury, testing for and treating of sexually transmitted infections, and to collect and preserve physical and other forms of evidence. Seeking medical attention helps preserve the full range of options, including the options of working through the College’s Title IX procedures and/or filing criminal complaints. Many services regarding sexual violence are free.
Local medical assistance can be obtained at
- Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital (“CDH”)
