Free expression of opinions and ideas Air University faculty, students, and staff are members of a learned profession, and members of their respective educational organizations. The free exchange of opinions and ideas is essential to the educational process and, to the greatest extent possible, faculty, students, and staff are encouraged to speak and write freely. Even in this academic setting, however, the importance of Air University’s military mission requires limits on some types of expression.

23 Sexual Assault The term sexual assault is an "umbrella" term that includes many different types of sex-related offenses. The Department of Defense (DoD) defines sexual assault for training purposes as follows: intentional sexual contact, characterized by use of force, physical threat or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Sexual assault includes rape, nonconsensual sodomy (oral or anal sex), indecent assault (unwanted, inappropriate sexual contact or fondling), or attempts to commit these acts. Sexual assault can occur without regard to gender or spousal relationship or age of victim.

24 Sexual Assault What constitutes “unable” to give consent:
Alcohol or drug impaired Unconscious; asleep Underage Mentally handicapped Physically helpless Sexual assault is actual or attempted sexual relations with another person against her or his will or without her or his consent. Sexual assault is a crime. Offenders can be prosecuted in a criminal court and if found guilty, an offender may go to prison.

25 “Why Report it?!?” Sexual Assault
Serious impact to well being – medically (injury, STDs, pregnancy), and emotionally (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD)) Early treatment means early recovery When reporting it: Find a safe place or seek a person that you feel safe with ASAP! Seek medical attention For forensic evidence do not bath/shower and save the clothing

26 Sexual Assault Important Numbers:
Campus SA Hotline: (24 Hrs) Local Rape Crisis Center: Campus Counseling Center: Campus Clinic: Hospital/ER: Campus Security: Community Law Enforcement: 911

27 Sexual Harassment Definition: A form of sex discrimination that involves unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. DoD and Air Force policy on sexual harassment: Zero Tolerance!!! Reporting Sexual Assault Confront the offender – ONLY IF YOU FEEL SAFE; tell that person how you felt Report it to Cadre – if confronting the offender does not work There should never be a retribution against someone reporting sexual harassment or sexual assault incidents
