Domestic Violence

Does your partner or family member make you feel afraid? Unsafe? You are not alone. We can help you create a safety plan.

Stalking

Is someone making you feel afraid? Unsafe? If you are being stalked tell someone what happened and keep a record of the date and time of each incident.

  • Stalking Log
    • Documenting stalking behavior can be a difficult and emotionally exhausting task. A Women's Center advocate can provide support, information about the options available to you, and assistance with safety planning. Download a sample of the stalking log for your own use.

Student of Concern Report

Faculty and staff can play an invaluable role in helping students who are in distress. Your expression of interest, concern, and compassion is an important factor toward a student seeking the assistance they need. The Student of Concern Report is a part of a comprehensive reporting system that is an important element in fostering a safe and supportive campus community. It allows faculty and staff at UNLV to share appropriate information about students for which you are concerned. The Student of Concern Report and related information can be found online.

Voluntary Health Withdrawal

UNLV students may apply for a Voluntary Health Withdrawal (a separation of the student from the university) if they experience medical or psychological conditions that significantly impair their ability to function successfully and safely in their role as a student.

Visit the Voluntary Health Withdrawal page for more information.
