A rape was reported on campus Oct. 8. According to the USI Public Safety Incident Log, the incident occurred sometime between Oct. 6 and Oct. 7. The case was forwarded to a local law enforcement agency, and no further details have been released.

The university is required to disclose all sexual assaults in cooperation with the Jeanne Clery Act. The annual report was released by the university earlier this month with statistics for the 2017 year and showed that five rapes reportedly occurred on campus last year.

According to the university’s website, “USI condemns all gender-based discrimination including sexual assault, rape, sexual harassment, and all other forms of non-consensual sexual activity.”

The website states if a student is assaulted, he or she has options. Students can approach Public Safety, local law enforcement, the Dean of Students Office, the Title IX Officer in the Office of Human Resources, a local emergency room for medical care and the Counseling Center.
