Sexual Assault Response

The Office of the Dean of Students is available to meet with students who experience incidents of prohibited harassment, including sexual misconduct, and discrimination. The office's role is to help students navigate university processes, understand reporting options, and access resources and support services, including interim measures. Examples of interim measures include but are not limited to: issuing a No Contact Order between the parties; assisting with room changes or emergency relocation options; or assistance with academic accommodations.

We understand that such incidents can affect many areas of a student's life and the Office of the Dean of Students can serve as a central hub to help students identify and engage the resources available to them. Students are eligible to receive support from our office regardless of whether they elect to pursue criminal, civil, or administrative remedies through the University.

The Office of the Dean of Students can also assist students in making a formal or informal report to the university or law enforcement agencies. Click here to access our contact information.

The SAFE@UNC website  and Campus Health Services serve as additional resources for individuals seeking information on interpersonal violence awareness and prevention.

Students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to report any incidents of sexual or relationship violence to the police by calling 911 or the local law enforcement office where the incident took place.
