Sexual Assault Resources

Brightpoint is here to support you in situations where sexual assault has occurred.

If there has been an assault, you should:

  1. Get to a safe place as soon as possible.
  2. ​​​​Call 911. Then, if you are on campus, contact Campus Security at:
  • 804-796-4025 (Chester)
  • 804-897-6678 (Midlothian)

College faculty and staff members can also assist you in reporting the incident. For assistance, contact:

  • Title IX Coordinator
  • Deputy Title IX Coordinator


After the incident occurs, do the following:

  • Try to preserve physical evidence. Do not bathe or change clothes.
  • Get medical attention as soon as possible. VCU Medical Center and St. Mary’s Hospitals have specially trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) on call 24 hours a day. SANE nurses collect evidence through a Physical Evidence Recovery Kit (PERK), which can later be used in a criminal proceeding. The victim is not charged for the cost of the PERK.
    • The PERK will be used to prosecute your assailant if you decide to press charges. You do not have to decide or promise to press charges to have a PERK completed, but you may have it done to preserve evidence while deciding whether to press charges.
  • Consider contacting a trusted friend or family member to stay with you and support you.  Emergency room staff will contact The Richmond Regional Hospital Accompaniment Team (R-HART), who will send a trained advocate to the hospital. The advocate will be available to provide you with emotional support and information about community resources and support services.
  • Refer to our Title IX and Sexual Harassment page or our Sexual Assault Resources for additional information.
