HELP

IF YOU ARE NOT SAFE, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.

If you are on the Wheeling Campus, call Campus Security at 304-650-9994.

Aside from contacting a professional advocate, it is always helpful to have someone that you trust and care about with you for support. Reach out to a friend or family member to support you through the process.

You can also contact Stephanie Kappel, who is the designated coordinator for Title IX and Section 504. You can reach her at 304-214-8801 or skappel@wvncc.edu.

In the link above, you will find information regarding all areas of Title IX including supportive resources.

Title IX Team Organizational Chart


Four options in reporting an interpersonal violence:

1. Report assault but choose not to pursue charges.

2. Report assault and pursue internal (College) charges.

3. Report assault and pursue criminal charges.

4. Report assault and pursue both internal (College) and criminal charges.


Report to Law enforcement

For your own protection, call the police immediately, especially if the assailant is still in the immediate area. The police will help you whether or not you choose to prosecute the assailant. Reporting a sexual assault isn’t the same thing as prosecuting a sexual assault; prosecution can be determined later. If the sexual assault was perpetrated by another student, the police department will share your report with WVNCC as well. Contact police by calling 911.  


Contact an Advocate for Sexual assault victims

If you would like to contact an advocate, you can do so by calling the Sexual Assault Help Center at 304-234-1783 or by contacting any of the agencies linked here.
