Support for Reporting Parties

Sexual assault is never your fault.

Sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and harassment can be a traumatic experience, and the college encourages you to seek support. There are multiple resources available to help you, both on- and off-campus.

For immediate safety concerns, including threats and suicidal thoughts, call or go to Goucher Campus Safety or call 911.
