Reporting and Resources

If you are in immediate crisis, call 911.

If you are the victim of a Sexual Violence, the College’s first priority is to help you take steps to address your safety, medical needs and emotional well-being. You are encouraged to take the following actions regardless of whether you have made a decision about whether to pursue criminal charges or reporting to the Title IX Coordinator.

1. Ensure Your Physical Safety.

  • Call 911 for 24/7 help from local law enforcement.
  • Call (904) 819-6200 for 24/7 help from the Flagler College Office of Safety and Security. Flagler Security can assist with contacting local law enforcement and help you obtain transportation.

2. Seek Medical Assistance and Treatment.

It is crucial that you obtain medical attention as soon as possible after a sexual assault to determine the possibilities of physical injury, to prevent or treat sexually transmitted diseases, and, if applicable, to prevent pregnancy. Medical facilities can also screen for the presence of drugs given to you without your knowledge. Local options for medical care include Flagler College Health Services and Flagler Hospital.

Evidence collection kits are paid for by the State of Florida.

  • More details about medical assistance

    You can immediately notify law enforcement of your assault or you may wish to maintain confidentiality while you consider what options to pursue. Regardless, it is advisable to have an evidence collection kit completed as soon as possible after the incident. You have the option of maintaining anonymity while you consider your options and may ask that a “Jane Doe kit” be collected. This provides for the confidential preservation of evidence. Flagler Hospital administers evidence collection kits. You may go directly to Flagler Hospital or may be referred to the hospital by Flagler College Health Services. Employees at Flagler College Health Services can help you obtain transportation to Flagler Hospital and can help you contact a support person, such as a family member, a friend, or a roommate.

    In order to best preserve evidence for an evidence collection kit, you should avoid showering, bathing, going to the bathroom or brushing your teeth before the kit is completed. You should also wear (or take with you in a paper – not plastic – bag) to the hospital the same clothing that you were wearing during the assault. An evidence collection kit can still be completed even if you have showered or bathed.

    You may be accompanied to the hospital by a friend or other support person. At the hospital, a physician will briefly screen you, and a forensic nurse trained in evidence collection procedures will conduct the examination, collecting hair, fluid and tissue samples.

    The cost associated with evidence collection kits is paid by the State of Florida. So, you can have an evidence collection kit administered free of charge.

3. Obtain Emotional Support

The Flagler College Counseling Center can help you begin the recovery process. The professionals at the Counseling Center are trained to provide crisis intervention on short-term and emergency issues. Counseling is free of charge to all students.

4. Obtain Information

You are encouraged to report incidents of Sexual Misconduct to the College’s Title IX Coordinator, even if you have filed a report directly with law enforcement. She can help you access resources and can provide you with support and information, including information on the College’s procedures (link to policy and procedure page) for investigating and addressing instances of Sexual Misconduct.

  • Outside resources on Title IX and your rights

    The Office for Civil Rights’ mission is to ensure equal access to education and to promote educational excellence through vigorous enforcement of civil rights in our nation’s schools.
    Website: Office for Civil Rights

    Know Your IX is a survivor and youth-led project of Advocates for Youth that aims to empower students to end sexual and dating violence in their schools.
    Website: Know Your IX

    Title IX makes it illegal to discriminate because of sex, which includes discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, miscarriage, abortion, or related conditions, including recovery. Title IX also ensures the right to take medically necessary leave and to be free of harassment, intimidation, or other discrimination because of pregnancy-related conditions. By providing resources to educate and empower university communities, this project seeks to ensure the effective implementation of Title IX’s protections for pregnant women and parents
