EMU Sexual Assault Survivor Handbook Now Available
A new handbook, produced by the EMU SMART Project, is now available. The handbook is intended for adult survivors of sexual assault and provides you with accurate information regarding the medical and legal concerns that you may be having, as well as to discuss issues regarding your physical and emotional healing. We hope to increase help-seeking behaviors by reducing the stigma and fear surrounding sexual assault and reporting.

Eastern Michigan University is dedicated to being a safe and supportive campus around sexual and relationship violence. The I Choose initiative works to increase help-seeking behaviors; reduce stigma, fear, negative attitudes, and victim blaming; and raise awareness about the University’s sexual misconduct policy, reporting protocol and available resources.
EMU Campus Survey on Sexual Misconduct Culture
The EMU Campus Survey on Sexual Misconduct Culture is part of a national initiative to make campuses safer for everyone. It provides an opportunity for students to anonymously share their experiences and beliefs. These will be used to create recommendations to help reduce sexual misconduct at EMU. Eastern Michigan University is committed to providing a campus environment free from sexual misconduct, which includes, but is not limited to, sexual coercion, assault, harassment, stalking, and intimate partner violence.
If you are randomly chosen to participate, you will receive an email in the third week of the winter term 2019.
In order to achieve and keep strict confidentiality of participants, EMU has contracted an outside survey organization – the Wayne State University Center for Urban Studies which will be responsible for all contacts with EMU participants in the survey, including sending invitation letters and reminders.
- Students will be sent a link to the questionnaire.
- The survey takes about 25 minutes.
Students who complete the survey will receive a $10 gift card as a token of appreciation. In addition to that there will be an opportunity to win a lottery for 1 of 15 $100 Amazon gift cards.
