On Friday Aug. 28, Boise State students received a Campus Crime Safety Awareness Notice regarding an attempted sexual assault.

According to the email sent out by the Department of Public Safety, a student reported an attempted sexual assault that occurred in on-campus student housing on Aug. 19. 

It was reported that the two parties involved met on a dating app, and that the suspect has been cooperating with the university and Boise Police Department. 

Additionally, the Department of Public Safety also issued a Timely Warning Notice on Aug. 27 regarding a confirmed sexual assault that occurred in off-campus housing in the Lusk District. 

Students received communication on Aug. 23, regarding a possible sexual assault that also occurred in the Lusk District. It is unclear as to whether these two notices were related or are separate incidents. 


The emails reinforced the following: “The only person responsible for sexual misconduct is the perpetrator. It is a violation of University policy to engage in sexual activity without consent from the other person, non-consensual groping, recording sexual activity without consent, stalking, or exposing oneself in non-consensual circumstances. This is reflected in University POLICY 1065, SEXUAL HARASSMENT, SEXUAL MISCONDUCT, DATING VIOLENCE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND STALKING. A University student or employee in violation of this policy faces sanctions up to and including expulsion or termination.”
