Getting Care

Immediate Assistance

In an emergency, call 911 or Campus Security at 918-631-5555. Police and Campus Security can help provide for your immediate safety. Campus Security officers are trained to be professional, ethical, conscientious, sensitive to needs of the public, knowledgeable and competent in identified learning objectives. Campus Security and Tulsa Police can also assist you in receiving the appropriate medical care necessary, if desired.

Both outside of the university’s regular business hours and during them, and based on the nature of the incident, survivors of sexual violence are encouraged to call DVIS/Call Rape as soon as feasible. Their number is 918-7HELPME or (918-743-5763). You will be connected to a Call Rape counselor, who will assist you in providing specific instructions as to the actions to take. DVIS/Call Rape is not affiliated with TU, and they provide confidential services.

Talk with someone you trust. If you do not want to tell a family member or friend, find someone on campus with whom you can confide. This can include an RA (resident assistant), professor, academic advisor, athletic trainer or coach, a dean, or one of TU’s primary contacts. Primary Contacts are TU staff who have been trained to assist an individual who has experienced sexual violence. Primary Contacts are knowledgeable about the resources, services, and options available to and are prepared to guide survivors in accessing those resources and services.

Helping a Friend

Survivors react in a variety of ways after an assault. As a friend, colleague, or loved one, you may not understand why a survivor says or does certain things that may seem inconsistent with your expectations. This section may provide some guidance.
