Support resources are available for students on and off campus. We encourage students to seek out the support that is best for them.
On Campus Resources
1. Confidential Resources
Beloit College provides trained sexual assault counselors on campus who can legally keep a sexual assault discussion confidential. This gives students complete control over their decisions to report a sexual assault/misconduct incident. The counselors will supply students with information regarding medical care and counseling options.
There is a confidential responder on-call at all times.
During business hours
M-F, 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
(Responders are not required by law to file an official report if told about sexual misconduct/assault unless the individual is under the age of 18).

4. Support Group: Becoming A Survivor Support Group
Bi-weekly at 10:30am, Spirituality Room. Note exceptions for school breaks. Check calendar for more details.
This group is a supportive place for victims of sexual assault to share, discuss and be welcomed by others who have similar experiences. All victims of sexual assault are welcomed, regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred or who perpetrated it. The co-facilitators of the Becoming a Survivor Support group do not discriminate on the basis of identity, race, gender, words or actions. Survivors in any stage of healing are welcome. This group is co-facilitated by SARP staff professionals, not student interns.
Off Campus Resources
1. Seek Medical Treatment
If you have been assaulted, you may need medical treatment for injuries and may wish to have potential physical evidence collected. The Beloit Memorial Hospital or Janesville Mercy Hospital can request an advocate from the Sexual Assault Recovery Program (SARP) to be with you at the hospital.
2. Sexual Assault Recovery Program (SARP)
SARP is a community based program whose trained advocates respond to the emergency room to support the victim. They will assist and guide the victim through the legal system as well as provide free sexual assault crisis counseling. The 24 hour crisis hotline is 1-866-666-4576.
Contact the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE or 800-656-4673.
