Student Safety and Sexual Assault
Curtis is committed to ensuring a safe and healthy environment for students and seeks to provide services or advocacy for victims of sexual assault. These services may be provided on campus or off campus via a member of our mental health team, University of Pennsylvania Student Health Service, or the Victims Support and Assistance Unit of the Philadelphia Police Department. These services are invaluable to survivors of sexual assault; they can help ensure future physical safety, as well as mitigate the mental and emotional harm caused by sexual assault. To learn more about student rights and services visit the Curtis Sexual Misconduct Complaint Procedure.
