When engaging in sexual activities, it is not only necessary to give your consent for every
activity you engage in, but you should feel comfortable doing it. No sexual act should be
initiated without you being asked for your permission. Asking for consent can come in a
variety of ways. The most important aspect of consent is communication.
If you feel that your consent was violated and that you have been sexually assaulted in
some way, there are many on- and off-campus resources available including the SDSU
Police Department, the Sexual Assault Victim Advocate, the Center for Community
Solutions, the Title IX Deputy, Student Health Services, or Counseling and Psychological
Services. They will assist and support you in a variety of ways.
