Assault & Harassment Resources

The Graduate Representative Organization is committed to supporting a safe environment for each and every member of our community. If you have been sexually assaulted or a victim of sexual violence, we urge you to reach out to a counselor for emotional support and get medical care. Below are a list of resources concerning sexual assault and harassment.


Reporting at JHU

The following is from the Homewood Grad Web Page (11/14/2019):

“JHU has systems in place for students to safely come forward and report sexual assault on each of its campuses. JHU’s Office of Institutional Equity (OIE), student affairs and security work together to provide a safe and supportive environment for assisting students who report sexual assault. Students are encouraged to report sexual assault to security, student affairs and/or OIE. These three offices work in partnership to conduct investigations of sexual violence complaints filed by students, staff and faculty. All three of these offices are committed to handling reports of sexual assault with discretion, minimizing the individuals who need to be involved in responding to a report and to the greatest extent possible providing consideration of the wishes of the complaining party with respect to confidentiality and how they wish to have a complaint handled.”
