It’s Mental Health Awareness Month!

Stalking can leave a victim feeling anxious, confused, scared, depressed, embarrassed, vulnerable, or distrusting of others. It can also result in a victim experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

If someone you know has experienced stalking, let them know confidential mental health support is available on campus through:

Counseling Services | 330.490.7348 | David Center (by the Bookstore)
Please Note: Counseling Services is able to provide confidentiality to students who have experienced sexual misconduct or interpersonal violence and to employees when providing them with initial consultation.

Context is Key

“Why are you afraid? It’s just a gift!” A simple gift, text message, or personal visit may not immediately appear to be threatening, but in the context of stalking, they can signal danger for a victim of this crime. Check out this video to learn more about why understanding the context behind behaviors is critical to identifying stalking.

It's Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention Month!

Stalking and intimate partner violence can, many times, go hand in hand. Stalking is just one type of behavior that can be used toward a (former) partner to cause them fear. It can involve sending unwanted gifts or texts; monitoring computer, phone, social media or vehicle usage; showing up unwelcomed at someone’s place of employment; and installing tracking devices on someone’s computer, phone, or vehicle.  

Check out the video below to learn more about the connection between these two crimes.

September 2022

Although stalking is a crime under Ohio law, it is often misunderstood and difficult to recognize
when we don’t know what signs we’re looking for. It’s important we know it when we see it so we
can name it and stop it from happening to our friends and colleagues.

Walsh’s Sexual Misconduct and Interpersonal Violence (SMIPV) Policy defines stalking in two ways:

Title IX Stalking: Conduct on the basis of sex that constitutes a course of conduct directed at a
specific person that would cause a reasonable person to fear for the person’s safety or the safety of
others or suffer substantial emotional distress…See pg. 6 of the SMIPV Policy for the extended

Non-Title IX Stalking: Stalking as defined in the Title IX Stalking definition above that did not
reportedly occur in a program or activity of the University in the United States, or that otherwise fits
within the definition of stalking but does not fall within the Title IX Stalking definition because the
reported conduct is not directed at the alleged victim on the basis of sex.

Cavalier Safeguard Initiative 2.0 presents Know It. Name It. Stop It., a new section published monthly in the Walsh Wire for the 2022/23 academic year. In this space, we’ll be talking about stalking – a crime and a violation of university policy.
