Scheduled to open in March 2004, the lactation room, dubbed Baby Café, will contain a rocking chair, changing table, hospital-grade electric breast pump for women who don't own a pump or prefer not to bring their from home, and a refrigerator for temporary storage of breast milk.

Victims of sexual harassment, sexual assault, harassment based on sexual orientation, and relationship violence (dating or domestic) are encouraged to report these crimes and obtain assistance from the Women's Center. The staff can help people learn about legal rights, how to file complaints, and campus and community services designed to help victims of violence and harassment.

Women's Center: Gender Violence Prevention Program

The Women's Center: Gender Violence Prevention Program exists in response to the pervasive problem of sexual assault on college campuses, and in the larger society. A combination of education, meaningful policies, and victim-centered services is the framework for the program at SCSU.

The Women's Center is the designated department at St. Cloud State University to collect reports of sexual assault, and students, staff and faculty are urged to report such incidents. Third party reports are accepted and anonymity is preserved. We work closely with the Public Safety Department and St. Cloud Police Department in order to serve the needs of victims. For information, or to report a sexual assault, contact the Women's Center's Sexual Violence Prevention Program at (320) 308-3995 or 308-4958.
