If students know who to report a sexual assault to and what steps the school will take, they are more likely to feel reassured and report the crime to authorities. The probability of reporting is also linked to concerns about confidentiality. Victims may be embarrassed or fear reprisal. Victims involved in the consumption of alcoholic beverages prior to the assault might fear sanctions.
If you are a victim of a sexual crime, please call 911 or the UNC Charlotte Police Department at 704-687-2200. If you would like to speak to someone in person you may reach an officer at the address listed below:
