Getting Help During COVID-19

General Information

You may be physically away from campus for the time being but the Title IX staff is here to support NSU students, faculty, and staff, regardless of location. At a time like this, we recognize people affected by sexual violence and intimate partner abuse may be unable to readily access community resources. Because of this, we have gathered information below which we hope might be beneficial to members of the NSU community. The content on this page will be regularly updated to ensure relevant and timely access to information. 

Please contact NSU Title IX staff at TitleIX@nova.edu, by phone, or via the secure online reporting form with any questions, concerns, or specific needs you might have.  

NSU Resources

Title IX Team 

The NSU Title IX Team can provide resources, support, and information specific to your location, wherever you may be. We will reach out by email first unless we have indication to think that is not a safe way to communicate. You are welcome to describe details about the safest way to communicate when you complete the online reporting form.  

Center for Student Counseling & Well-Being

The Center for Student Counseling & Well-Being, formerly Henderson Student Counseling Services, has transitioned all services to on-line and telephonic platforms and will be operating remotely until further notice.

Additional considerations

  • The Broward County Courts have closed and suspended public access for a period of two weeks. The only exceptions at the Main Central Courthouse are for: persons seeking domestic violence injunctions (2nd floor, West building) and persons permitted by the Chief Judge and/or presiding judge. Find Broward County Clerk of Courts updates, here
  • Due to limited emergency shelter capacity, Women In Distress of Broward County, Inc. will not be accepting new emergency shelter intakes (with the exception of high lethality cases). Injunction-for-Protection petitions continue to be filed on behalf of survivors seeking restraining orders by calling 954-326-6302 (after 5 pm and on weekends, call 954-761-1133).  The 24-hours Crisis Line remains fully staffed. That number is 954-761-1133. The statewide crisis line is 1-800-500-1119.
