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]
101 N. Main St. 
Winston-Salem, NC 27101 

Emergencies: 911 | Non-emergencies 336-773-7700  

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.
