If you’re a survivor of sexual assault, let us help you.

Wingate University takes sexual misconduct very seriously. We have a support system in place and want to make resources easily accessible to you. There are options for reporting the incident, in addition to getting support, medical treatment and sexual assault counseling.

You can start by visiting our Title IX FAQs page. Comprehensive details on everything you need is provided in our Survivor’s Information Guide (PDF). This guide details our Sexual Misconduct Policy and explains how to make a report. You’ll also find tips for taking care of yourself and your options for sexual assault counseling.

And if you still have questions, contact your Title IX coordinator. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for any reason. We’re here for you.

Your Title IX Coordinator

In accordance with federal regulations, we’ve dedicated a Title IX coordinator responsible for the administration and implementation of Wingate University’s Title IX compliance efforts.

If you have Title IX questions, complaints or concerns please contact:

Patrick Biggerstaff
Title IX Coordinator
Director of Operations
Campus Services
315 E. Wilson Street
Wingate, NC 28174
704–233–8247

Inquiries regarding the application of Title IX may be referred to the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR). The OCR ensures institutions receiving federal funding comply with Title IX regulations.

When to Contact Your Title IX Coordinator

If you feel you’ve been the victim of sexual harassment, misconduct, assault or violence or sex discrimination, we encourage you to reach out. That goes for students, faculty, staff, visitors and applicants for admission or employment.

Federal and state laws prohibit retaliation against individuals who file a complaint in good faith or participate in an investigation involving an alleged Title IX violation.
