Reporting Options

The University strongly encourages anyone to report Prohibited Conduct to the University. If criminal activity has occurred, the University also strongly encourages you to report such incidents to law enforcement, which is a separate reporting option. While reporting is encouraged as soon as possible following an incident, the following reporting options are available to you at any time.  The University through the Student Complaint/Title IX Coordinator or Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office can assist you with making a police report or, if requested, with connecting you to the court system to seek a civil no-contact order.

  • For emergency situations, dial 911 for assistance.
  • View more  information about available resources.
  • View a quick reference guide on how to get help if you have experienced prohibited conduct, including sexual assault or sexual violence.
  • For a comprehensive list of resources and reporting options, view the Policy and Procedures or visit SAFE at UNC.

Report to the University

You are strongly encouraged to report incidents to the University so that immediate and corrective action can be taken to eliminate the conduct, prevent its recurrence and address its effects. Reporting to the University may provide for disciplinary action against students when a Policy violation is found, available protective measures (e.g., no-contact order) and other assistance such as academic and housing accommodations. The following list provides you with the ways in which a report can be made to the University. You may bring a support person with you to make the report.

  • Explore Paths of Resolution by the University
    • Contact the Student Complaint/Deputy Title IX Coordinator or the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office for more information about making a formal report to the University. While the Student Complaint/Deputy Title IX Coordinator is required to disclose reports of incidents to the University, this individual can explain the reporting process to you and the different methods of resolution that are available, including the possibility of taking no formal action.

Report Criminal Activity to Law Enforcement

In addition to reporting to the University, you are also strongly encouraged to report harassment, stalking and violence to local law enforcement.  Reporting incidents to law enforcement may allow for a criminal investigation to be conducted and criminal charges to follow.  You may bring a support person with you to make the report. Reports may be made based on the location of the incident.

If you are in an emergency situation, dial 911 from anywhere for assistance from law enforcement.

Pursue Civil Legal Action
You may also consider pursuing civil legal action through the court system to obtain a civil no-contact order or other redress.  Please contact the Student Complaint/Deputy Title IX Coordinator or the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office for more information.
