Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA, 2013, 2015)

The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA), also known as the Campus Save Act, was enacted to educate students, faculty, and staff on the prevention of rape, acquaintance rape, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Rockingham Community College (RCC) recognizes the importance of assisting individuals who are victims of sexual assault and helping them regain a sense of personal control over their lives and decisions. RCC is committed to the maintenance of an environment that is supportive of its primary educational mission and free from all exploitation and intimidation. RCC will not tolerate rape, sexual assault, or other forcible and non-forcible sex offenses and supports this policy for students, faculty, and staff by sponsoring prevention, intervention, and education programs specifically addressing these offenses. The following definitions are terms related to the Campus Save Act and include a listing of sexual offenses as well.

Child Sexual Offense/Assault

North Carolina Law [NC General Statute 7B-301 and 115C-400] requires reporting of any known or suspected case of child abuse or neglect (a child is an unmarried victim under age 18) by a “parent, guardian, custodian or caretaker” to the local Department of Social Services within 24 hours.
Chapter 7B – North Carolina General Statutes
Chapter 115C – North Carolina General Statutes

North Carolina Law [NC General Statute 108A-102] also requires reporting of any known or suspected abuse, neglect or exploitation of disabled adults (age 18 and over) by their caretaker to the Department of Social Services. The disability can be mental or physical, as long as it prevents the adult from obtaining essential services.
Chapter 108A – North Carolina General Statutes

Even though the law requires reporting of abuse, neglect and exploitation of minors and disabled adults only in certain situations, RCC feels that ethically all suspected incidences should be reported. Therefore the established protocol of RCC is to report any suspected abuse, neglect, or exploitation of minors and disabled adults to the Department of Social Services within 24 hours. Because of the traumatic nature of sexual assault, victims will be referred to RCC Counseling Services to assist with counseling, support, advocacy, education, etc.
