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.

On-Campus

Violence Prevention Victim Assistance (VPVA)

vpva.rutgers.edu
848-932-1181

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.
