Resources for Victims of Sexual Misconduct

On/Off Campus Resources

Under Colorado law, public colleges are required to provide the following information for students who are victims of sexual assault.

If you are a victim of a sexual assault, you may request a medical forensic exam. This is important if you think you want to seek legal action. It is vital that a victim obtains medical treatment as soon as possible and does not bathe, shower, douche, or change clothes until given permission by medical personnel. You can have the exam without having to report the assault to law enforcement. You will not be charged for the cost of the exam.

The College has an agreement with the following providers for the exam:

Ryon Medical Center 
1420 East 3rd Street 
La Junta, CO 81050
Phone: (719) 383-0303

Parkview Medical Center 
400 West 16th Street 
Pueblo, CO 81003 
Phone: (719) 584-4400

If you do not have transportation to the facility, you may contact a friend or family member, or Arkansas Valley Resource Center at (719) 384-7764. Any cost for transportation is the responsibility of the student.
