The Center for Student Advocacy and Wellness has multiple partnerships with programs at The University of Toledo and our surrounding community. We partner with:


What is Sexual Assault?
Sexual assault is any unwanted sexual contact, including childhood sexual abuse, rape, attempted rape, incest, 
exhibitionism, voyeurism, obscene phone calls, fondling, stalking and sexual harassment. 

What is Interpersonal Violence?
Interpersonal violence includes physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological actions or threat 
of actions that a reasonable person in similar circumstances and with similar identities would find
intimidating, frightening, terrorizing or threatening. 

Sexual Assault Facts:
* Alcohol is the most common “date rape” drug.
* Sexual assault is the least reported violent crime, with estimated reporting rates at 28-40 percent.
* Rape victims are 3 times more likely to suffer depression, 13 times more likely to abuse alcohol and 
      26 times more likely to abuse drugs.
* Only about 2 percent of sexual assault accusations reported to police are false. This is the same rate 
      of false reporting as other types of violent crimes.
