How to Report
You Have Options
Survivors of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence,
stalking, and sexual harassment have a number of different options available
for reporting sexual misconduct and seeking help and support.
Ask for an Accommodation for Academic and Safety Concerns
Experiencing sexual assault, dating/domestic violence,
stalking, or sexual harassment can impact academic performance in a number of
ways, such as having to miss classes for medical appointments or court dates,
difficulty completing assignments or problems studying for exams. You have the
right to reasonable academic accommodations following any form of sexual
misconduct. The Title IX Coordinator can help you with requesting interim
interventions related to academics such as deadline extensions, arrangements to
re-take a course, withdrawal from a class without penalty, and/or ensuring
changes do not negatively impact academic records.
You have the right to feel safe on campus and avoid contact
with the respondent. These interventions can include a change in campus living
situations, class schedules, and parking assignments. For instance, the Title
IX Coordinator or the Office of Student Affairs may prohibit the alleged
respondent from having any contact with you or Family Services can assist you
with obtaining an order of protection. You have the right to not bear an undue
burden of the changes that are made and the above offices will consult with you
in this process.
File a Criminal Complaint with the Police
Winston-Salem Police Department [Non-Confidential]
Winston-Salem, NC 27101

The Winston Salem Police investigate, arrest, and assist in
the prosecution of offenders. The Winston Salem Police may provide testimony
for proceedings in criminal and student conduct hearings. The Winston Salem
Police will transport students to the emergency room and court appearances.
When a student files a complaint with the Police, the police document the
information in a report and discuss various options with the victim for further
action. If the student wants to press charges, a police report is created, the
student is informed about the criminal process and the police conduct a
criminal investigation. If the police determine that the elements of a crime
have been met, they forward the police report to the State's Attorney's office
who determines if offenses will be prosecuted.
A copy of the police report is also submitted to the
University Title IX Coordinator for an investigation and for possible action
through the student conduct process if the alleged respondent is a University
student. The Police should inform victims about available victim assistance and
advocacy resources at Family Services.
