Sexual Assault:

Interpersonal violence is unacceptable and is not tolerated at UNCG. The University strives to be proactive and progressive in our approach to addressing these issues.  Our community is committed to uphold the rights of all students to live and learn in a healthy and safe environment.

Students should understand that the University community has five core values (Honesty, Trust, Respect, Fairness, and Responsibility) that all members of the community are expected to uphold. Central to those values is the belief that all members of the University community have the right to be treated with respect and to participate in community life with dignity. Sexual assault and other forms of violence (physical and/or mental) violate all members’ right to respect and dignity.

Interpersonal Violence Awareness & Prevention

UNC Greensboro understands the prevalence of interpersonal violence and the serious impacts these acts have on individuals and the University community as a whole. This University is dedicated to providing a comprehensive prevention, response, and support services to address these acts of violence including sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking.

Interpersonal Violence Prevention

The Department of Recreation and Wellness collaborates closely with campus and community partners in an effort to prevent interpersonal violence through awareness, education, and outreach. Our major prevention efforts include:

  • Sexual Assault Awareness Week (including Take Back the Night and Clotheslines Project)
  • BRAVE (Building Responsible Advocates for Violence Education) bystander education workshops
  • Dating Violence Awareness Month (including the Red Flag Campaign)
  • SPARTA peer education workshops for classroom and residence halls programs

Report & Get Support

It’s important for survivors of sexual assault to report the incident in order to get the necessary care and support. Please review your reporting options and contact someone for support. Reporting is also important because according to two recent studies, 3 to 6 percent of college-aged men admit to having completed or attempted a sexual assault. Of that 3 to 6 percent, 67 percent have completed or attempted multiple sexual assaults. The average number of victims varied by study from 6.2 to 14. If you have been assaulted by someone, it is statistically likely that that perpetrator has assaulted someone else and will assault another person.
