any of these substances by an alleged assailant in a violation involving sexual misconduct will be considered when determining the appropriate sanctions and may result in a more severe sanction. If a student is sexually assaulted/raped, it is important that the victim get to a safe place and get medical assistance and support as quickly as possible. We encourage students to report to NGU Campus Safety & Security at (864) 977-7777 or if the incident occurred off campus, call Greenville County Sheriff’s Office at 9-1-1. (If the incident occurred off campus and you make a report to the GCSO, we still encourage you to report it to NGU Campus Safety & Security so that we can take steps to help you on campus.) Campus Safety & Security or GCSO will take a report and assist a student in accessing other services. Making a police report does not require a victim to press charges. It is strongly recommended that a victim of sexual assault receive medical attention as soon as possible after the incident.

Crime Prevention

Education of the University Community

Programs to educate new and returning students and promote the awareness of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking are coordinated through the Office of CMSE. In the 2017-2018 school year, the Office of Student Engagement’s Office of Student Discipline, the Title IX Office and the

Office of Campus Safety and Security began conducting an annual Awareness Week during the fall semester for all students. The Awareness Week presents speakers, panel discussions, themed-days, booths, and other events aimed at raising awareness of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, providing support and options to victims, and empowering bystanders. Events of the week will also address abstinence and sexual purity.

Also, during the fall (August) and winter (January) orientation information sessions, the chief of Campus Safety & Security meets with new and transfer students in small groups to discuss various safety topics, including rape, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking; personal safety and responsibility; keeping the campus community safe; and self-defense. The entire student body is also addressed by the Title IX Coordinator and a representative of Campus Safety and Security concerning these topics during a weekly chapel meeting during the semester. New and returning employees are encouraged to join students in these training, awareness, and educational opportunities. Additionally, employees can find resources for dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in the Employee Handbook.

Taking Responsibility for Your Safety – Refuse to be a Victim

If someone is going to commit a crime, they must have three things to accomplish the task: desire, ability, and opportunity. Personally, there is not much that you can do about the perpetrator's desire and ability. However, you can take steps to manage and reduce their opportunity.
