Due to recent events on campus, the editorial board has assembled this short list of resources for anyone who may be at-risk of interpersonal, sexual or gender-based violence. This list also includes two proactive trainings that anyone can complete to help create a safer environment on campus for us all.
SafeWalk is a walking buddy program led by students. Two trained students are available to walk you home to any on or off-campus location within 2.5 miles. They operate from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Sunday-Thursday. You can find them outside of Davis Library, or call (919)-962-7233.
Gender Violence Services Coordinators (GVSCs) provides advocacy and support on gender-based violence experienced either before or during one's time at UNC. Services are available to all students, faculty, staff and post-doctoral fellows.
Courage to Heal: A Sexual Assault Recovery Group at CAPS is sponsored by UNC Counseling and Psychological Services and offers a support group for women recovering from sexual trauma. The group is private and confidential.
Carolina LiveSafe Mobile App is a safety app that provides a direct connection to UNC police. The app can be used to report tips, summon help, use SafeWalk and get additional resources.
