Review My Options Before Deciding About Whether to Report
You have several options for reporting to the University or the police. To assist you with your decision making you can speak to any of the resources listed below. The Confidential Support team is available 24/7 to help you navigate your options.
Confidential Campus Resources for Students*
Confidential resources, by law, will keep your identity and information private. They are able to provide for your immediate mental well-being and to discuss your options with you.
CST: Confidential Support Team
CST provides specialized support related to sexual and relationship violence, which can range from a one-time appointment to ongoing counseling. CST team members are available to walk you through your options for responding to sexual violence, and will assist you in getting to a SART exam, and/or making a report to the police or the university.

These resources will respect your privacy to the greatest extent possible; however, they are unable to guarantee confidentiality as they are required by law to notify the Title IX Coordinator upon learning of Prohibited Conduct.
Consultation From the SARA or Title IX Offices
Both the Sexual Assault and Relationship Abuse Office (SARA) or the Title IX Office can answer questions about available resources, Stanford processes, and reporting options. The Title IX Office has a staff member specifically dedicated to meeting with students seeking information about their options. Seeking consultation does not require making a report or initiating a formal process. Both offices can assist with making a police report.
