  • If this is an emergency situation and you feel you are in danger, call 911 or Duke police at 919-684-2444.

If you have been sexually assaulted within the past 120 hours (5 days), it is important to know your options for proper medical intervention and legal protection. Call the Women's Center first to talk through your options and make the decisions that feel right for you. If you wish, an advocate can accompany you to the hospital. Other campus resources are also available under Title IX and the Duke Sexual Misconduct policy.

No matter when you experienced the abuse, you can still benefit from talking with someone.

Our counseling services are confidential. Counselors will not disclose information about your abuse unless you give them permission to do so. Staff of the Office of Gender Violence Prevention and Intervention will not file a report with the University or Police unless you ask them to.
