Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Support
All persons affiliated with Carleton College (staff, faculty, and students) are bound by the Policies Against Sexual Misconduct as endorsed by the Carleton Board of Trustees.
For comprehensive information about Carleton's policies, reporting sexual misconduct, filing a complaint, or seeking support, see Carleton’s Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response website.
Counselors at Student Health and Counseling:
- provide free, confidential support for individual students who have either experienced sexual harassment or assault, or been accused of violating the sexual misconduct policies.
- provide consultation services for students, faculty and staff who have concerns about other students
- coordinate educational programming about sexual misconduct for the broader student body.
- When calling to schedule a counseling appointment, please inform the receptionist that you are calling regarding sexual misconduct, to assure that you receive an urgent appointment.
Medical Staff at Student Health and Counseling:
- provide free, confidential medical care for students who have been sexually assaulted. This care includes treatment for minor injuries, pregnancy prevention, and STI testing/treatment. Serious physical trauma will be referred to the Northfield Hospital Emergency Department.

- Trained nursing personnel, called Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE Nurses), can perform an evidentiary exam to collect evidence, should a victim wish to consider pursuing a legal complaint of sexual assault. After a sexual assault, it is important to have an exam within the first 120 hours after an assault.
- If you want to go to the hospital, call ahead to the Emergency Room (507-646-1100) to request a SANE nurse.
