If you feel unsafe and/or need emergency assistance following an incident of sexual misconduct, the following resources are available to help:

 

Colby Security: 207-859-5911

  • Available 24-hours/day
  • Security can address immediate safety concerns, facilitate contact with the Dean-on-Call and Counselor-on-Call, and facilitate after-hours communication with a Title IX Coordinator for after-hours campus reporting.

 

Waterville Police: 911

  • Available 24-hours/day
  • The Waterville Police can take reports that may trigger criminal investigation and can discuss legal safety options.

 

Maine General Hospital Emergency Room, Thayer Campus: 207-872-1000; 149 North St, Waterville, ME 04901

  • Maine General’s Emergency Room provides 24-hour/day treatment for injuries and sexually transmitted diseases and access to emergency contraception.
  • Maine General’s Emergency Room also conducts full Sexual Assault Forensic Exams. Sexual Assault Forensic Exams entail collecting evidence that could be useful should you decide to make a police report. Getting a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam, however, does not obligate you to make a police report. Sexual Assault Forensic Exams are most effective when completed in a timely manner—immediately following the assault, if possible, and no later than 96 hours after the assault. Ideally, avoid bathing/showering, using the toilet, combing your hair, and changing your clothes before a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam.
