Below is a list of University and Off Campus (non-University) confidential resources. None of these resources would require any involvement by the Office of Institutional Equity (“OIE”), but could provide help and support.
OIE staff members are available to meet with faculty, staff, or students by phone or in-person. If you are not ready to pursue a formal complaint, you can withhold your name and other key details. We can talk through your circumstances and provide guidance on complaint options and services.
If you or a friend are in crisis, the Behavioral Health Crisis Support Team is here to help. Here are a few quick steps to take when you or someone you know is in crisis and needs help.
Step 1: Reach the BHCST
Call the BHCST access line at 410-516-WELL (9355) to speak with a crisis support clinician.
Step 2: Let’s Connect
Share your name, current location, and how to contact you if disconnected. The clinician is then ready to hear what’s happening, and you will receive immediate help.

Peer Support for Students
JHU’s Sexual Assault Resource Unit (SARU) is a volunteer student group that refers survivors to resources and raises awareness about the issue of sexual assault on college campuses. SARU runs a peer support line for those affected by sexual assault and individuals who are concerned about a friend or loved one. The support line is staffed by student responders. For a confidential resource, please call the Sexual Assault Helpline or your school’s designated counseling service, noted above.
SARU also provides peer education focused primarily on what constitutes consent, what factors contribute to rape culture, and how to respond appropriately to survivors. By hosting speakers, putting on poster campaigns, and creating peer-to-peer activities, SARU raises awareness of sexual assault and promotes consent and mutual respect in all sexual encounters. Please note that because SARU is a student group, its members are not required to report received calls to JHU campus officials. Students should be aware that information shared with SARU does not constitute a report or complaint of sexual violence filed with JHU. Accordingly, if you wish to file a complaint, please click here to learn more about JHU’s complaint processes
The SARU support line number is 410-516-7887 and the SARU email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
