Sexual Misconduct

Sexual Misconduct and Assault Response Team (SMART)

UNM and community partners have developed a victim centered and victim controlled process to help you. You can choose which services you want to use. Please click the link above for information and resources for individuals affected by sexual misconduct. 

Call 911 if You Are in Immediate Danger!

First Steps to Consider:

  • Get to a safe place
  • Preserve all physical evidence of the assault, even if you are unsure whether you want to report the crime.
    • Don't shower or wash clothing
    • Save all text messages, emails, social media postings (taking screenshots can be helpful) or anything else that might relate to the assault, or that might be helpful later in reconstructing a timeline of events. 
    • Write down the names of people who might have seen you immediately before or after, as it’s easy to forget names or locations. 
    • Even if you do not want to participate in the investigative process now, you might later change your mind, so it’s helpful to preserve as much information as possible.
  • Obtain a forensic exam through the Albuquerque SANE Collaborative (see below under Getting Medical Attention)
    •  UNMPD can provide transportation-even if you do not want to file a police report!
  • Go to a nearby hospital or medical center for medical attention
  • Call a trusted friend, family member or someone else who can provide emotional support. 
  • Contact a resource center to help you navigate your options
  • Contact a University Survivor Advocate
