Title IX Resources
If not in immediate danger, you may also consider Family Service of the Piedmont’s 24-hour Crisis Hotline at 336. 273.7273.

The College encourages all community members to make a prompt report of any incident of sexual harassment, sexual violence, stalking or intimate partner violence to local law enforcement and the College. For individuals who are not prepared to make a report, or who may be unsure what happened, but are still seeking information and support, there are several legally protected confidential resources available on campus. Confidential resources will not share any information with the College or anyone else, unless there is an imminent risk of harm to self or others.
- Family Justice Center
- One-stop shop for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and elder abuse. Provides free and confidential support including safety, legal, social, advocacy and health services. Community outreach and education.
- Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN)
- A confidential, anonymous national sexual assault hotline
After a traumatic event, such as a sexual assault or some other form of sexual or gender-based violence, it can be important to seek medical care. Health care providers can help you determine the extent of injuries, and whether you need medications (e.g., emergency contraception, antibiotics to prevent sexually transmitted infection, antiretrovirals to prevent HIV).
Eagle Physicians, 336.294.6190
You may obtain medical care at any medical facility. However, Moses Cone and Wesley Long are two local health care facilities with nurses (called "SANE nurses" or Forensic Nurse Examiners, "FNE") who are specially trained to perform a forensic sexual assault examination (SANE exam) that preserves evidence within the first 72 hours after an assault. There are two local hospitals that provide this service. It is recommended that you contact the Family Services of the Piedmont at 336.273.7273 to arrange for an advocate to meet you at the hospital.
In addition to the confidential resources listed above, Guilford community members have access to a variety of resources provided by the College. The staff listed below are trained to support individuals affected by sexual harassment or sexual misconduct and to coordinate with the Title IX Coordinator consistent with the College’s commitment to a safe and healthy educational environment. While not bound by confidentiality, these resources will maintain the privacy of an individual’s information within the limited circle of those involved in the Title IX resolution process.
