Duke Women's Center and Office of Gender Violence Prevention & Intervention

  • The Duke University Women's Center and the Office of Gender Violence Prevention & Intervention promotes a campus culture that ensures the full participation and agency of women students at Duke. We are committed to a campus culture that provides all students access to a full range of personal and professional choices, fosters agency and self-determination for all, and creates transformative experiences to understand and resist patriarchal oppression in our lives and the world.

    If you are a student at Duke University (of any gender) and are a victim-survivor of gender violence, contact us 24/7 at the Women's Center about our confidential services.

    If you have been sexually assaulted within the past 120 hours (5 days), it is important to know your options for proper medical intervention and legal protection. Call the Women's Center first to talk through your options and make the decisions that feel right for you.

    No matter when you experienced the abuse, you can still benefit from talking with someone.

    Our counseling services are confidential. Counselors will not disclose information about your abuse unless you give them permission to do so. Staff of the Office of Gender Violence Prevention and Intervention will not file a report with the University or Police unless you ask them to.
