Criminal acts intended to injure, threaten, or intimidate a person or persons because of their race, ethnicity, gender, or religious beliefs. These can include murder, sexual offenses, assault, vandalism, threats, harassment, arson, or other violations.

Sexual Assault and Rape

Oklahoma State University – Tulsa sexual assault and rape prevention efforts involve the entire community. Members of the OSU-Tulsa community consist of representatives from the OSU-Tulsa Public Safety Department, OSU-Tulsa Administration, Faculty and Staff, Career Services and Student Life. These members, individually and collectively, can provide or coordinate training programs, presentations, and workshops to any interested group. Members of the OSU-Tulsa community can also work with off-campus agencies such as the Tulsa County District Attorney's Office and Tulsa Domestic Violence Services.

Program topics will generally include stranger rape, date and acquaintance rape, rape trauma syndrome, and victim recovery.

OSU-Tulsa also offers a nationally recognized Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) class for women. The RAD program is a comprehensive course for women that moves from awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and avoidance to basics of hands-on defense training. OSU has certified RAD instructors on the police staff.

Procedures to follow if assaulted

If you become a victim of a sexual assault, you should follow certain procedures. These procedures are clearly outlined in the rape avoidance seminars mentioned above. OSU-Tulsa Public Safety Department can make available Rape Prevention pamphlets upon request.

Evidence

Preserving evidence is of paramount importance after a sexual assault. Victims should be careful not to bathe, douche, wash clothing, or tamper with other potential evidence after a sexual assault. Evidence is critical in a criminal prosecution.

Contact the police

When you report a sexual assault to the OSU-Tulsa Police or to the Tulsa Police Department, an officer will be sent to your location. Determining the extent of physical and emotional trauma you have suffered will be the officer's first concern. If the attack just occurred, the officer would need a brief review of the events, a description of the attacker, their direction of travel, and a description of the vehicle used by the assailant. This information is necessary to apprehend the attacker as soon as possible.

Sexual assault exam

A sexual assault examination will generally be given by a Registered Nurse at an accredited hospital. You will be given a complete physical exam and will be treated for any injuries you may have sustained. You may be examined for the purpose of obtaining evidence, which would be necessary in court. Appropriate antibiotic therapy can be given to decrease the chances of developing venereal disease. A Sexual Assault Crisis Team can provide support and guidance to the victim. The victim of rape is NOT responsible for legal or initial medical expenses.

Police investigation

Later, generally at police headquarters, you may be asked to be more specific about the events of the attack. This questioning is done to help the investigation and to help you arrange the events firmly in your mind. Your case will be handled considerately and courteously. Based on conversations with the Investigator, you can then decide whether to file charges. When finished at police headquarters, you can go to a place of your choice. OSU-Tulsa officers have been trained to deal with sexual assault victims. However, should you feel uncomfortable speaking with a male officer, do not hesitate to say so. Every effort will be made to notify a female officer.

You may also report a rape to University Officials. You do not have to file charges against the attacker if you report a rape. However, it is wise to give the information to the police anyway. The information you give may help locate a suspect in other offenses and possibly prevent another person from being raped. The police will not pressure you to file charges. Victims of sexual assault can elect to have personal information eliminated from police reports. In addition, a victim's academic situation will be changed upon request if reasonably available.

Timely Warnings

The OSU-Tulsa Police carefully review all reports of criminal activity and immediately warns the OSU-Tulsa community of serious crimes or threats occurring on or near campus. Reports may be received directly or from any University official who contributes to the Annual Crime report.
