Report Sexual Misconduct
Please note that while anonymous reports are accepted, the university’s ability to respond to an anonymous report may be limited depending on the level of information provided. The Title IX Office keeps reports as private as possible, only sharing information with those necessary to assist in the assessment, investigation, and resolution of the report.
To file a police report, visit or call the police department that covers the area where the incident happened. If you are still in danger, call 911. For USU students outside Cache County, contact your local police department or call 435-797-1510 to get help finding the correct contact.

DNA evidence collected after a sexual assault can be collected from your body, clothing and other personal belongings. A sexual assault forensic exam, often called a “rape kit,” can preserve possible DNA evidence and make sure you receive important medical attention. Cache Valley Hospital is trained and equipped to collect evidence and provide an exam after a rape has occurred. Other local clinics and hospitals will refer you to this hospital.
Cache Valley Hospital
2380 North 400 East, North Logan
If you choose to get a rape kit, try to avoid these activities that could damage evidence:
- Using the restroom
- Changing your clothes (if you change your clothes, bring them with you in a paper bag.)
- Combing your hair
- Cleaning up the area
