Victim Advocacy Services

Advocacy Services for Survivors and Victims

A confidential Victim’s Advocate is someone with training and expertise in supporting survivors of unwanted sexual experiences (e.g. sexual assault/abuse), relationship abuse (dating/domestic violence), stalking, and sexual harassment. An Advocate can provide support, information about options, and assist survivors through the medical and legal processes following the experience of sexual or interpersonal violence. This typically includes, but is not limited to, providing information so that the individual can make informed decisions about what resources they would like to access, which could include reporting to the police or the University, accessing free psychological services, seeking a Domestic Violence Shelter, and accessing academic accommodations or safety measures such as no-contact orders and room changes. Survivors are entirely in control of the Advocate’s level of involvement while seeking services.
