Social Media Incident Update

Dear Rams,

We are aware of the sexual assault allegations circulating on social media over the past 24 hours. We are actively exploring the information that we have currently, and the proper university departments are addressing the situation.

While we further explore the information that has been provided, please be assured that we have assessed the possibility of any immediate threats, and determined students, faculty, and staff are safe. Police and Public Safety, Title IX, and the Division of Student Affairs are working collaboratively and will execute the most appropriate resolution. 

As we further explore this sensitive matter, we encourage you to use the available student resources for reporting. Information can be reported to Police and Public Safety at 336-750-2900, anonymously through the Rave Guardian app, or direct message any of the official university social media channels. No detail is too small to make a difference. 


The university has a full range of support services for our students. Your safety and privacy are essential to us. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for the support you need.
