Note on available resources: If you believe you are the victim of a rape or sexual assault, you can receive assistance immediately by calling your local police department or 911. If you are a student, you can contact the Student Assistance Program (SAP) by calling 1-866-465-8942 or TDD: 1-800-697-0353. When you call, please reference Walden’s ID, SAP4EDU. In addition, if you are a Walden employee, Ginger is available for all U.S.-based regular full- and part-time colleagues and their dependents, age 18 and older. You do not need to be enrolled in Adtalem’s health plans to take advantage of Ginger. To access, download the ‘Ginger Emotional Support’ app on your smartphone from the Apple Store or Google Play Store. Select ‘Get Started,’ then ‘My organization.’

Both the SAP and Ginger are free, "confidential resources" at Walden, which means that all conversations you have will remain confidential and won’t initiate any type of investigation into the incident. If you would like to report a sexual assault to the appropriate university official please contact the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy, listed above.
