Choosing any option does not prevent individuals from accessing other options. There are many options of support, and a survivor’s decisions may change over time. Please know that all support and response services will be sensitive to the needs and privacy of each individual survivor.
The University can provide help and support. Students can seek assistance from the University through the Office of the Dean of Students or the Deputy Title IX/Student Complaint Coordinator (Ew Quimbaya-Winship, firstname.lastname@example.org, 919-843-3878) and the Title IX Coordinator (Christi Hurt, email@example.com, 919-966-6754). Both the Office and the Dean of Students and Ew Quimbaya-Winship can assist students seeking interim protective measures such as University-based no contact orders, changes in housing or class schedules, and other measures designed to promote the safety and well-being of students. These measures are available regardless of whether a student reports their experience to law enforcement or seeks to pursue any additional action. The University will always respect the privacy of a student and address a student’s concerns in a manner that honors his/her needs and preferences. However, there may be circumstances when there is a danger to the broader campus community that require additional action beyond interim measures. In these cases the University will proceed with care and will take all reasonable measures to protect the student and all involved.
