Sexual Assault Response Advocates
Director of Wellness & Health Promotion/Sexual Assault Response Coordinator
The Sexual Assault Response Advocates are for all survivors of sexual violence, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, etc and regardless of what kind of assault occurred. The advocate you talk to will be able to help you determine what your options are, and empower you to make the choice that is best for you. The advocates are there to listen, provide support and care, and give you the options that you have in order to move forward in your healing process.
Please note, that while the Sexual Assault Response Advocates are here to help, they are not a confidential service. They do have an obligation to report to the Title IX Coordinator, but will not share with anyone else. For more information about Title IX, check out the Title IX page.
