Vols Help Vols: You Are Not Alone

The purpose of this booklet is to provide you with guidance on caring for yourself and understanding your rights, the resources available to you, and the university’s procedures. You may have already spoken with the university’s Title IX coordinator, a member of the University’s Sexual Assault Response Team, or a member of the University of Tennessee Police Department about the incident; if so, this booklet will serve as a supplement to that conversation.

Reports or complaints of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking, or questions about the university’s policies, procedures, resources, or programs concerning any of those issues, may be directed to the university’s Title IX coordinator or one of the university’s deputy Title IX coordinators.
