Victim Assistance Program
The victim assistance program is dedicated to assist any UNCG student, staff or faculty that is victim of a crime or traumatic incident. The initial help is crucial in a victim's recovery process. One of our goals is to help the victim to get from the “victim” mindset to a “victor” mindset.
