Relationship Violence and Rape Resources

Relationship-Violence-and-Rape-imageThough reporting of sexual assaults in the United States has increased by 1/3 since 1993, sexual assault is one of the most under reported crimes, with 60% still being left unreported.

At Arcadia University’s Counseling Services, counselors work together with Public Safety to report crimes and to provide emotional support and relief in a confidential and safe way. They can also provide you with beneficial information and resources. If you suspect you or someone you know could be in an abusive relationship, counselors can help you prepare to take the necessary steps to ending that relationship.
