An Iowa State student reported being sexually assaulted by an acquaintance according to a timely warning sent out by the ISU Police Department.

The warning emailed to the entire campus said the incident occurred in an apartment in University Village, located north of campus, on Jan. 22.  

The email sent also included ISU Police’s list of resources and policies regarding sexual assault, such as Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support (ACCESS), the Dean of Students office website and the university’s Title IX coordinator, located in 3410 Beardshear Hall. 

The email also said people interested in bystander intervention training given by Green Dot can find more information at, or contact [email protected] or 515-294-1099.

The Clery Act requires universities and colleges that participate in federal aid programs to notify students and employees whenever there is “a threat that a serious crime is ongoing or may be repeated.” 

Timely warnings are specifically for incidents which take place on Clery geography which is defined as “any building or property owned or controlled by an institution within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution’s education purposes.”
