Resources

No person should bear the effects of gender-based/sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking alone. The safety, health and well-being of community members impacted by gender-based/sexual misconduct is of paramount concern. UNCW accordingly offers connections to a range of services and resources to address these needs and support students affected by gender-based/sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking.

Confidential University Resources

CARE

UNCW CARE intervenes on a broad spectrum of violent behaviors, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and harassment. CARE offers a comprehensive variety of violence prevention and relationship education programs, trainings, and educational campaigns to the UNCW campus. CARE responds to students who have been victimized, as well as those affected by someone else's experience with abuse or assault, by providing supportive services, including crisis response, individual advocacy, and coordination with both on-campus and off-campus resources.

Advocacy and Support

Through CARE, the university's violence prevention and intervention program, the university provides confidential consultation and victim advocacy services to students who have experienced gender-based/sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or harassment. CARE responds to students who have been victimized as well as those affected by someone else's experience with abuse or assault; provides supportive services, including crisis response, individual advocacy and accompaniment services; acts as a support person in the campus conduct system; and coordinates with both on-campus and off-campus resources.

CARE's Victim Advocates will inform and counsel students of their rights and available resources to help empower students to make informed decisions and choices in responding to and coping with the effects of sexual misconduct. Students can also access victim advocacy via the Rape Crisis Center and Domestic Violence Shelter and Services. Advocates assist students, but the choice of what actions to pursue belongs solely to the victim. A Victim Advocate from CARE is available at any time.
