Reporting and Resources

The College’s first priority is to help you take steps to address your safety, medical needs, and emotional well-being. Take these steps whether or not you have decided to pursue criminal charges or report the incident to Title IX Coordinator, Jessica Kobryn.

Ensure Your Physical Safety.

If you are in immediate crisis, call 911. You can also call the Office of Safety and Security at (904) 819-6200 for 24/7 help.

Reporting Information and Resources

Seek Medical Assistance and Treatment

Get 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. 

More Details About Medical Assistance 

You can immediately notify law enforcement of the assault or you may wish to maintain confidentiality while you consider what options to pursue.  Regardless, in instances of sexual assault, it is advisable to have an evidence collection kit, free of charge, completed as soon as possible after the incident. 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, friend or roommate.

In order to best preserve evidence for a 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 if you have showered or bathed. 

You may be accompanied to the hospital by a friend or other support person.  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 costs associated with evidence collection kits, including their administration, are paid by the State of Florida and are therefore free of charge.

Outside resources on Title IX and your rights

Outside resources on Title IX and your rights

The Office of 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

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.

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.
