Victim Advocacy Program

The Victim Advocate is a trained professional which provides free non-judgmental support and information to students and employees who may be victims of crime, violence or abuse. The victim advocate serves all three campuses and strives to treat victims with compassion and respect.  Speaking with the Victim Advocate DOES NOT start a formal misconduct or criminal process, unless you want to access those options.
