Get Help Now

If you are currently in an emergency situation and need immediate help, call:

Emmanuel Campus Safety: 617-735-9888
Boston Police Emergency: 911
Sexual Assault Unit: (617) 343-4400

If an incident occurs, the College encourages victims to report the incident and seek both police and medical assistance. Seeking police or medical assistance does not obligate a Complainant to make a complaint or take any further action, but the decision to seek medical help and gather evidence allows complainants to preserve the full range of available options. The College will assist any community member to get to a safe place, provide transportation for medical help and, if requested, contact law enforcement. For 24/7 help, contact Campus Safety, or contact the Title IX Coordinator during normal University hours (M-F 8:30-4:30).

Any person who has experienced Prohibited Conduct is encouraged to take steps to preserve evidence of the incident, as doing so may be necessary to the proof of a crime or to obtain a protection order from the court. After an incident of sexual assault occurs, one should try to refrain from bathing, showering, brushing teeth, drinking, eating, douching or changing clothes until the evidence can be collected. If one changes clothes, one should place each garment in a separate paper (not plastic) bag. If the incident involves any written or electronic communications (e.g., pictures/videos, texts, social media posts, etc.), take care to preserve copies and not delete the originals.

Confidential Health and Safety - Medical Treatment
You may seek medical care without reporting the crime to the police. Go to the hospital emergency room for treatment of injuries, prevention of sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy, and crisis intervention and emotional support services. Physical evidence for medical/legal services can also be collected at this time. Evidence can be collected within 5 days of the assault.
Local emergency room
SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) - certified nurses are specifically trained to perform exams and collect forensic evidence from sexual assault survivors. You can seek medical care whether you report the assault to the police. You may receive free care and do not have to use your insurance.
