ARISE Assault and Rape Information, Support and Education

Welcome to Assault and Rape Information, Support and Education (ARISE)

"Linking Eagles to Education and Survivor Resources"


The mission of Assault Rape Information Support and Education (ARISE) is to provide resources to those impacted by sexual violence and to provide education to the FGCU community.

We are an alliance of University faculty and staff who seek to enlist the campus community in the fight to end sexual violence through education and awareness.  We seek to support initiatives of other University stakeholders by disseminating information, hosting educational activities, and advancing the dialogue about sexual violence through conversation.

We believe in a culture of respect that supports healthy relationships and choices.



To provide the University community with an independent resource center to uphold the ARISE mission; until the day when sexual violence and discrimination no longer exist.

What is Sexual Assault?

  • Have you experienced unwanted sexual contact?
  • Were you scared to say no or resist?
  • If you said no, were you ignored?
  • Did someone have sex with you without your consent or where you unable to consent?
  • Were you forced to have sex through threats and physical restraint?

If you answered "Yes", you may have been sexually assaulted. Click "Where to Go for Help" in the left navigation bar.
