Title IX Reporting
As a student, faculty member, or staff member, you have the right to report any experience of sexual misconduct.
You can report at any time, no matter how much times has passed.
You and your witnesses cannot be disciplined for disclosing the illegal consumption of drugs or alcohol in the context of the report.
We encourage you to visit GMU'S Title IX site to learn more.
Emergency Medical Information

In Northern Virginia the preferred hospital for such an exam is INOVA Fairfax, where they have specially trained nurses on-call 24 hours a day for such purposes, no matter where in Northern Virginia the crime occurred."
