Campus Rape Incidents
September 10, 2021

In compliance with the provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, SUNY Cortland is giving notice of two rape incidents that occurred on campus.

Reported Offense:  A campus community member reported a rape incident that occurred on August 28, 2021, and another campus community member reported a rape incident that occurred on September 01, 2021. Both incidents took place in a residence hall on campus. 

Suspect(s): The suspect(s) were known to the reporting individuals prior to the incident.

It is the institution's responsibility to make the campus community aware that the incident took place. The incidents were reported to the Title IX Office.

Remember, sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. While nothing is failsafe, here are some suggestions everyone may want to consider:

  • Make sure you have consent. Consent is a clear and freely given yes, not the absence of a no.
  • People who are incapacitated by alcohol or drugs cannot give consent.
  • Be active in supporting a safe and respectful community. If you see others engaging in disrespectful or inappropriate actions, speak up and get involved or contact someone else to assist.

If you have been sexually assaulted, there are resources available to help you. Please visit our Reporting Options page and our Title IX Resource page for more information.
