On Jan. 4, #SurvivingSJU trended nationally, with more than 2,000 tweets detailing sexual misconduct allegations at St. John’s as well as negative encounters with administrators while attempting to report incidents.

The University said it is investigating each claim on Twitter and promoted its available resources, such as the SOAR (Sexual violence Outreach, Awareness — and Response) Office and the Callisto online reporting system.

In light of students’ recent concerns with the reporting system at the University, the Torch has compiled a list of outside resources for those who seek another avenue to report instances of sexual assault and abuse.
