If you are in danger at any time, please call 911 or, if on the Reynolda campus, call Wake Forest University Police Department at 336.758.5911. If you are injured, get medical attention right away.
Getting medical attention is important for addressing the physical consequences of any type of assault, even if you do not wish to submit a report to the police or to the University.
If you go to the emergency room, you will receive preventative care, treatment, and referrals to follow-up care. You will also have the option of evidence collection.
The emergency room may also contact the police. It is your choice whether or not you talk with the police. If you choose to talk with the police they will take information for a police report and this information will be forwarded to the Title IX Coordinator for handling under University policies.
The University has a number of offices that provide advocacy and counseling to individuals who have experienced Sexual Misconduct.
Advocacy and counseling services are confidential. Confidential resources are those resources that do not have mandatory reporting requirements to the University’s Title IX Coordinator and law enforcement. Confidential resources include the Safe Office, mental health counselors and other medical professionals when such persons are providing services in their respective roles as counselors and medical professionals.
