Victim Advocacy Services

The Well-Being Center provides free, confidential, appointment-based services to all students who are affected by sexual violence, interpersonal violence (dating or domestic violence), and stalking, as well as comprehensive sexual violence prevention programming.

Connect with a victim support advocate if you are seeking support for yourself, looking for information on how to support a friend, or interested in bringing a workshop or training to your class or student organization.

Immediate Care Page  

Advocates Provide:

  • Emotional and administrative support, including coordinating interim measures, accommodations, and other supports.

  • Psychoeducation on the impact of trauma and the cycle of violence.

  •  Referrals and resources both on and off campus. 

Advocacy Is:

  • Trauma-informed: meaning we are experts on the impact of trauma on student functioning. 

  • Survivor-centered: our goal is to reduce the burden on survivors as they navigate their recovery. 

  • Empowerment-based: We don't believe in telling anyone what to do; rather, we provide information to help survivors make fully-informed decisions. 

Advocacy Isn't:

  •  A substitute for counseling: Advocacy might feel therapeutic, but it isn't therapy. For psychotherapy services, please see here. WBC clinicians are trauma-informed to respond to your concerns.

  • Medical Advice: While we encourage survivors to access medical care, we do not provide medical advice.

  •  Legal advice: We work closely with local organizations who provide free legal services for survivors.
