SANet is available to all Boston College community members, and encourages the whole community to access this resource to support our students. In situations where students who are seeking support regarding sexual misconduct may also be responsible for Student Code of Conduct violations (e.g. possession of alcohol, COVID-related policies), the main focus of the University will be to respond to the report of sexual misconduct.

SANet provided a safety net that I knew was always there if I needed it.
