- ASU Counseling is free to students who identify as victims of sexual assault.
- ASU Counselors are the only ASU employees who are not mandatory reporters, meaning they are not required by ASU policy to report sexual violence they hear about regardless of the victim’s wishes.That means if you confide in a professor or CA, they may be required to tell the administration even if you don’t want them to.
- ASU rape victims have complained that ASU counselors are ill equipped to serve sexual violence victims.
