Sexual Assault Prevention
- Avoid working, studying, or being alone in buildings, resident halls, or isolated areas of the campus.
- Do not shower in a deserted gym or residence hall shower.
- Be cautious about dating someone you do not know well. Obtain information from a mutual acquaintance or try to arrange a double date or group activity.
- Avoid excessive use of alcohol, and do not use illicit drugs; they interfere with clear thinking and effective communication.
- Never leave beverages unattended or out of sight.
- Know your sexual desires and limits. Communicate them clearly.
If you find yourself in an unwanted sexual situation, be assertive. Just say no. If you are told no when you make sexual advances, accept it. No means no!
Sex Offender Registry and Access to Related Information
On September 30, 2003, the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000 (CSCPA), enacted on October 28, 2000, will be in effect. The law requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, volunteers services or is a student.
Information concerning registered sex offenders who may be attending or employed by the Long Island University, C.W. Post Campus may be obtained through the local law enforcement agency with jurisdiction:
