Confidential Support & Advocacy

If you are experiencing or have experienced relationship violence, sexual violence, or stalking but do not feel comfortable disclosing your identity or filing a formal complaint, that is okay! There are still resources available to you! Confidential resources are confidential and do not disclose the information shared with them unless there is a report of immediate harm or abuse of a dependent. Confidential resources can:

  • Offer a non-judgmental, empathetic space to discuss your experiences
  • Work through the options available to you for reporting, medical care, and other short term and long term needs related to violence
  • Connect you to resources such as counseling services, Title IX, and student organizations
  • Create an individualized safety plan with you
  • Provide in-person response and accompaniment to meetings with medical providers, police, or Title IX
