Campus Safety

Students need to feel safe, both physically and online. While campus safety is a frequent topic of discussion, the threat of digital crime is an often overlooked element of student safety. It is important for all students to understand security and crime reporting procedures and to be aware of online risks.

Sex Offender Registry

Subjects convicted of certain crimes in North Carolina are required to register as sex offenders with their local Sheriff's Office.
