Confidential Counseling Resources
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 Victim Assistance (VPVA)
Confidential Advocates are confidential resources for survivors. They are available 24/7 through the Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance. An advocate’s role is to:
- Assure that the survivor is aware of and understands their various legal, medical and university-based options,
- Talk with the survivor about their feelings and concerns,
- Provide ongoing support during the time of crisis and during any medical or legal process.
You have a right to have an advocate with you during any process you choose to engage in. Contact an advocate by calling 848-932-1181.
Free, confidential counseling is available at VPVA for you, your friends and others for as long as you need assistance.
