Drugs and dating violence

For most students, the college experience offers a unique opportunity for personal growth, intellectual stimulation, excitement, and fun.

Studies have shown that college students are most at risk of becoming involved in a sexually abusive situation. Strangers perpetrate only 20 percent of all reported rapes.

The health and safety of every student at the State University of New York and its State-operated and community colleges is of utmost importance.

SUNY Maritime College recognizes that students who have been drinking and/or using drugs (whether such use is voluntary or involuntary) at the time that violence, including but not limited to domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault occurs may be hesitant to report such incidents due to fear of potential consequences for their own conduct.

SUNY Maritime College strongly encourages students to report incidents of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault to institution officials.
