Victim/Survivor Advocacy

If you are in an emergency situation, please dial 911 immediately for law enforcement and medical assistance.

How can an advocate help?

An advocate provides affirming, empowering and confidential support for survivors and brings a non-judgmental, caring approach to exploring all options and resources. Our state-certified advocate is here to help you navigate your options, provide you with support, connect you with resources on campus or within the community, and serve as a trusted point of contact throughout the whole process. After experiencing a traumatic event like a sexual assault, incident of intimate partner violence or stalking, a survivor might not know what their options are. Confidential advocacy meetings allow the survivor to seek emotional support as well as academic, medical, reporting and safety planning options.

It is always the survivor’s decision to pursue any of the available resources or to report an incident to the police or the university. An advocate is here to support the survivor’s decisions.

Students, faculty, and staff of all identities may experience gender-based violence and need access to advocacy and support services.
