Red Flag Campaign

Check out our Confidential Advocates to speak with one of our Advocates, who will listen and explain options available to you while providing support.

Red Flag Campaign

The Red Flag Campaign is a Bystander Intervention program designed to connect the NWACC Community through education and empowerment.  We want to create awareness and provide outreach for issues surrounding domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault. We want to have a community where everyone is encouraged to speak up and speak out against violence and harassment. Students are encouraged to self-report by going through to our Department of Public Safety, the Director of Student Support and/or the Dean of Students Office. Employees are encouraged to report to our Department of Public Safety and/or Human Resources.

NWACC has a zero tolerance policy for gender-based misconduct to include sexual harassment, discriminatory harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and other acts of harassment and/or discrimination congruent with our campus policy.  We are not asking that you put yourself in a potentially dangerous situation by standing up to someone who is being abusive or mean, but instead that you help to get those who are in need of assistance in contact with someone who can help.  Find the full policy on Title IX here

Check out the full list of specific definitions for domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.

If you are in an abusive relationship, or feel that you are victim of stalking on our college campus, please contact the Dean of Students office at 479-619-4234,  the Director of Student Support at 479-619-4315, or the Department of Public Safety at 479-619-4229.  You can email us at redflag@nwacc.edu. For employees in need of assistance, please contact our the Department of Public Safety or Beverly Hill in Human Resources at 479-619-2679.
We have counseling services available on campus for students through a partnership with Ozark Guidance Center.
