Dear Eagle Nation:
April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month and our newsletter is teal in recognition of this important cause. Here at Coppin State University, we are committed to supporting survivors of sexual assault and educating our community on all forms of sexual misconduct to end sexual violence in our community.  We seek to maintain an atmosphere, on and off-campus, that helps make every member of our community feel safe.

If you are a victim of sexual assault:
  • Immediately after an incident, get to a safe place.
  • If you are in immediate danger or injured, call Coppin State University Police at
    410-951-3911 or dial 911 to reach local law enforcement.
  • Take care of your physical and emotional needs: seek medical attention even if you do not report the incident to law enforcement. Confidential medical treatment is available from the University’s Community Health Center at 410-951-4188. Coppin State University Police are available to transport you to a local medical facility when the University’s Health Center is closed.
  • Preserve any information or materials that could assist with a criminal investigation or investigation by the University. This includes clothing, bedding, phone/text messages, photos, and physical evidence that could be destroyed by bathing, washing your hands or mouth, etc.
Confidential counseling and support services are available through the Center for Counseling and Student Development at 410-951-3959 or 410-951-4264.
I encourage you to join any of the events planned on campus this month, including a
Take Back the Night Walk on April 21 at 7 p.m. 
If you have questions related to Coppin State University events for Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month or additional resources, please reach out to Katsura Kurita, Title IX Coordinator.  You can reach her by phone at (410) 951-6543 or email at kkurita@coppin.edu.
