Tags: sexual assault Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) alerted students via email Tuesday to a report of sexual assault that took place in the early morning hours Friday in a men’s residence hall on North Quad.The report was made to a University official, the email said.Quoting from “du Lac: A Guide to Student Life,” the email defined consent as a clearly communicated agreement, which cannot be inferred from “silence, passivity or lack of active resistance” or given if a person is intoxicated.“Anyone initiating any kind of sexual contact with another person must seek consent and not engage in sexual contact unless consent is given,” the email said.Further quoting du Lac, the email said sexual misconduct is inconsistent with the University’s values, and everyone in the community is responsible for maintaining a safe environment.“On college campuses, perpetrators are more likely to assault an acquaintance than a stranger,” the email read. “Being aware of your own safety and watching out for your friends are important steps you can take to reduce the risk of sexual assault.“The perpetrator, not the survivor, is responsible for any instance of sexual assault. Nothing a survivor does or does not do is an excuse for sexual assault.”Information about sexual assault and resources for survivors can be found at ndsp.nd.edu and csap.nd.edu
