Who's Who: Who to Go to If You've Been Sexually Assaulted

In partnership with EOAA, the Aurora Center, and UMPD, the Sexual Assault Task Force created a video highlighting resources available to members of the campus community that have concerns regarding sexual assault. This video is now used in first year, transfer and graduate student online orientation courses.

Safe & Free Transportation 

The University of Minnesota offers two options so that you don't have to walk home alone. The first is a walking or biking service which allows students to call the number to request a security monitor to take them anywhere within a specific boundary from the U. This boundary can be found on their website. The second is the Gopher Chauffeur which is a free ride service that provides rides on Monday-Saturday night. They will pick you up from many of the surrounding neighborhoods to campus, and will drop you off as far away as Uptown.
