V. Victim Support Service

  1. Contact numbers for counseling, mental health, and other support services for crime victims are listed in the Wilmington University Student Handbook. At present, Wilmington University has no procedures in place that encourage pastoral counselors and professional counselors, if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform the persons they are counseling of any procedures to report crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis.
  2. In any case involving an alleged sex offense, a victim who does not wish to remain in his/her present class section may be granted a transfer to any other reasonably available class section.

VI. Campus Disciplinary Procedures

The Wilmington University Code of Conduct and campus disciplinary procedures are set forth in detail in the Wilmington University Student Handbook (Code of Conduct may be revised without notification by Wilmington University).
