The ETSU Counseling Center provides personal counseling for students. OASIS (Outreach & Awareness: Sexuality Information for Students) is a program of the Counseling Center at East Tennessee State University. OASIS addresses issues of Dating/Relationship Violence, Sexual Violence, Healthy Sexuality/Relationships. Our programs are designed to serve the needs of the ETSU population with information, education, training, advocacy, counseling, and referral services.
The Bucs Press 2 service is available 24/7 by dialing (423) 439-4841 and pressing 2 for a counselor.
Despite ETSU's strong interest in having complainants of sexual misconduct come forward, the university realizes that not every student is prepared to report. If you are a complainant of sexual misconduct but are not ready to inform the university, you are encouraged to contact the ETSU Counseling Center. The Counseling Center is bound by separate laws of confidentiality and will not inform other members of the university of your contact under most circumstances, unless there is an imminent safety concern, or as otherwise required by law. At your request, the counselor will report the incident for inclusion in the annual safety report without relaying any identifying information. In this way, the campus can accurately report the number of sexual assaults which have occurred, while protecting your right to privacy.
ETSU takes sexual violence and misconduct very seriously. An anonymous online form is available for reporting purpose. This form is used to understand the campus climate at ETSU, to gather information regarding incidences of sexual and dating violence of our students on or around the campus, and to help ETSU staff plan a response to violence in our community. If you know of a violation or wish to report a personal experience, you may fill out and submit the online form (Bucs Report It/Silent Witness Form) via Public Safety at: http://www.etsu.edu/dps/bucsreportit.php
PLEASE NOTE: Completing this form does NOT constitute a police report nor a student conduct report. You will NOT be contacted by the university unless you indicate a desire to be contacted and provide your name and contact information.
