Sexual Assault Resources & Survivor Support
If you have experienced relationship or sexual violence, we encourage you to seek support. The university offers options so that you can choose what feels right to you. The Campus Sexual & Relationship Violence Center (SRVC) provides victim advocacy and education services related to sexual and relationship violence. A forensic exam cannot be done at Pat Walker Health Center, so we refer patients to the NWA Center for Sexual Assault. However, for more information about what to do if you are a victim of sexual assault, you can learn more here.
Sexual Assault Care: The GYN (Women's) Clinic supports sexual assault survivors with compassionate follow-up medical care and recovery support.
The GYN (Women's) Clinic aims to create a welcoming environment for all patients.
