CAPS Resources

The Counseling and Psychological Services along with campus police have developed the Sexual Misconduct Advocacy and Resource Team (SMART).

The goals of this committee are to educate the campus community through increasing awareness of sexual assault while working to reduce instances of domestic and sexual violence. SMART members are trained to address educational needs as well as work with individuals who have experienced violence.

The SMART members are compiled of a cross section of the campus community. They strive to be educated, aware of, and available for any needs the UNCP community could encounter. The members act as advocates and help with the resources and referral options, on and off campus.

Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.)

The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth.

R.A.D. group is offered on a semester basis for women. For information contact us at 910.521.6202.
