Victim advocacy is a confidential resource designed to discuss your experience and needs. A Victim Advocate can get you connected with multiple campus offices including (but not limited to): Housing & Residence Life, Dean of Students, Title IX, and Student’s First. For those interested in trauma counseling, Victim Advocacy is often the first point of contact prior to scheduling with our on-site counselor. Victim Advocates are here to listen to your story, validate and empower you, and advocate on your behalf to ensure your needs are being met.
