Guide to reporting for criminal or conduct investigations:

Reporting to Police
(Criminal Investigation)

Reporting an assault to campus police or Greensboro police does not commit a person to pressing charges or prosecuting the assailant. If a survivor chooses to report to police, they will conduct a thorough investigation and collect evidence (including a SANE kit if that was completed) to help with prosecution. The case will then be passed on to the county’s District Attorney’s Office where they will decide (with the survivor) if the case will be tried or not.

Reporting to University
(Student Conduct Investigation)

A student can also choose to file a report to the university – usually through the Dean of Students Office or Title IX Coordinator – if the assailant is/was also a student or employee at UNCG. The university can then bring up charges against the assailant for violations to the Student Code of Conduct or the Faculty/Staff Policy Manual.

Even if the assailant is not a student or employee at UNCG, students are encouraged to report the incident to the university so that the university can connect students with the different resources they may need.
