What if this happened to me while I’m a student?

Ensure that you are safe

If you are worried about your immediate safety, call 911. Seek support from someone you trust in the process.

If you are on campus, not in immediate danger, and do not wish to call the police, you can contact the Campus Safety and Security or call the RD on Duty.

Resident Director on Duty  -  706.450.7001 (24/7 support)

The College will help any Covenant College community member to get to a safe place and will arrange for transportation to the hospital, coordination with law enforcement, and information about on- and off-campus resources and options for resolution.

Seek medical attention

Individuals with significant injuries should go to the closest emergency room.

Seek support

There are multiple on and off campus resources and support systems available to you for ongoing support and care.

Any member of listed Title IX officers, Student Development, staff, or faculty are available for support of all students. These employees will connect you to next steps. While these members of our staff and faculty are not confidential, they will maintain individual’s privacy as much as possible and will support you throughout the process.
Confidential Resources for Support

Students are highly encouraged to seek professional care for both physical and mental health, regardless of seeking to make a Title IX or Sexual Misconduct Complaint.
