Support, Reporting, and Resources

If you or someone you know is a survivor of sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, or stalking, please know you are not alone and support is available. Students can receive support for their wellbeing, academic success, and address safety concerns through the Dean of Students Office without needing to make a formal complaint to the University or law enforcement. Below you will find information on reporting, University policies, and supportive resources on campus and in the community. 

 

 

 

  • Confidential Advocates:

    • The Albany County SAFE Project operates a 24-hour hotline for victims and survivors of sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, stalking, child abuse, and elder abuse. They provide crisis support, emergency shelter and material assistance, and advocacy and referrals. The Campus Services Advocate can also support you in navigating a report and investigation process with law enforcement or the University.  You can also drop by their office in Knight Hall 117 if you would like to talk to someone in person, call 307-766-3434 or 307-745-3556 (hotline) 

  • Counseling options:

    • The University Counseling Center provides free confidential counseling to students. Students can go to the office in Knight Hall, room 341, to make an appointment and speak with a counselor. 

    • The UW Psychology Center provides free, trauma-specific therapy to students and other university community members. Please call or email to set up an initial appointment with a therapist.

  • Medical care:

    • SANE Exam: Students who would like a forensic examination ("rape kit") should go to the Ivinson Memorial Hospital ER to see a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner.

    • Student Health Services provides free, confidential medical services to students with a range of concerns. Services include reproductive exams and STI testing.

  • The Albany County Crime Victim Witness Program provides information and updates to anyone who has reported a crime to University of Wyoming Police Department, Laramie Police Department, or the Albany County Sheriff. 

A confidential advocate from SAFE Project can assist you in determining if you want to make a report to the University or to law enforcement.
