WMU Sexual Assault Policy The sexual assault policy at Western Michigan University is for the most part sensitive and thorough. It seems to cover most aspects of emotional handling and speedy prosecution while respecting the rights of the victim. The policy begins by establishing ten guarantees from the school to the victim. These range from allowing the victim to arrange meetings to give information about the assault, protecting the victim from being judged, blamed, or put in the public eye, allowing the victim to choose whether they want to meet with a male or female officer, and if they want/need medical attention or the assistance of a counselor.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
