FOLLOWING AN ASSAULT -
Make sure you are safe from further harm.

The first step is to take care of medical needs. Health Services has 4 SANES (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners) who provide free medical services for victims of sexual assault 24/7/365 at UWG Health Services. To reach us after business hours, contact UWG Police Department at 678-839-6000 and request that they page the physician. You are never forced to file criminal charges, even if UWG police are called.

You may also call the Carroll Rape Crisis Center at 770-834-RAPE (7374). Free and confidential services are available 24/7.

In addition, free counseling services are available for all UWG students who are victims of sexual assault at Counseling & Career Development Center (CCD). CCD is open Monday-Friday, 8a-5p. Contact is (678) 839-6428.

Students may have sexual assault exams free of charge at Health Services even if it occurred off campus.

After immediate needs have been addressed, complaints regarding sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, can be made to the Title IX Coordinator for investigation by the university.
