Survivor Information Packet
The CVRC is a CONFIDENTIAL, safe, and supportive single point of access for all members of the UNCG community impacted by sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, sexual or gender-based harassment, and all other forms of campus violence. We empower victims to make the choices that are best for them and provide the opportunity for on and off campus services to respond directly to the center, creating a central, safe, and comfortable space for victims to report and get support.
If you experienced interpersonal violence:
What To Know
- It is not your fault! Regardless of any circumstances, no one asks or deserves to experience interpersonal violence.
- You set the pace.
- You have the right to choose who you speak to, what resources you use, what you say and when you say it.
- There are many resources available to help you both on and off campus.
- Your information will be kept private and only shared with those who, “need to know.” We want to help ensure your well-being and the well-being of our community members.
- Go to a safe space. If you are in immediate danger, call UNCG Police at (336) 334-4444.
- If you are in crisis, call Family Service of the Piedmont crisis line at (336) 273-7273 or go to the Campus Violence Response Center on the ground floor of the Gove Student Health Center building.
- Seek medical attention. Even if you do not want to report the incident, you may have injuries of which you are not aware or want to discuss options for prevention of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. A Victim Advocate from the Campus Violence Response Center can accompany you to medical resources.
- You can have an anonymous Sexual Assault Nurse Examination performed that can preserve evidence for one year to give you time to decide if you want to move forward with prosecution or not. This does not require you to report to police. Remember to avoid showering, bathing, douching, eating, drinking, brushing your teeth, or smoking if at all possible in order to preserve evidence. Clothing worn during or after the assault should be saved in a paper bag to best preserve evidence. A Victim Advocate from the Campus Violence Response Center can be with you during a SANE exam and serve as a support resource.
- You can submit an anonymous report to the UNCG Police Department.
- You can report to the Title IX Coordinator at any time by calling (336) 256-0362 or submitting a report. A Victim Advocate from the Campus Violence Response Center can support you through a Title IX investigation and student conduct hearing.
