Confidential resources are people who are not obligated to share any personally identifying information about a report of sexual violence (such as the survivor or accused’s name) with law enforcement, the Title IX Coordinator, or any other University administrator.




Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance (VPVA)
The Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance (VPVA) has an advocate on call 24/7 who can provide you with detailed information about your options and resources so that you can make informed decisions about what you want to do.  Some of those options include getting medical treatment including the forensic exam for evidence collection, going to the police, applying for a restraining order, changing your living environment or classes, reporting this to the Title IX Coordinator, getting counseling, or deciding to do nothing at this point.  Whatever you decide, the advocate will support that decision and help you.  Free, confidential counseling is available at VPVA for you, your friends and others for as long as you need assistance.
