Stalking Prevention Resources

Title IX protects students from several types of harassment based on sex, including stalking. Stalking by an intimate partner can be difficult to recognize and can gradually escalate because attention and affection are often desired qualities in a relationship. The OneLove Foundation highlights how some behaviors can be red flags of stalking, such as contacting you constantly, obtaining details about you before you provide them, monitoring you excessively and showing up unannounced. 

NSU's Title IX/Sexual Misconduct Policy defines stalking as engaging in 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. NSU’s Title IX Office provides resources and support for students and employees who have experienced stalking (regardless of where it may have occurred). In addition to learning about rights and options if you may have experienced stalking, you can also learn about ways to protect your information online.

If you or someone you know believes that they may be a victim of stalking, it can be critical to maintain a log of stalking-related incidents and behavior. Keeping a record of any encounters or incidents will help show a pattern of behavior. Here are two resources that may be helpful for those wishing to keep a record: 

The SPARC Stalking Incident & Behavior Log is a great tool to be used to document as things happen and includes more information about how and what to document. 
The Stalking and Harassment Assessment and Risk Profile (SHARP) is a tool that can be used to create a narrative of a victim's stalking experience. By answering a few questions, a confidential document is created that can be provided to law enforcement or court officials. It will also create a safety guide for victims that gives recommendations to those who may be likely to experience violence and how to minimize that risk,
