You have a wealth of resources available to you should you find yourself in a crisis. One of the ways we can offer support is through relationship violence and sexual assault advocacy.
Our assistant director of interpersonal violence prevention and response provides advocacy and support, regardless of whether you choose to report to law enforcement or the university. As a confidential employee, they will not disclose your identity to university officials or law enforcement without your consent. This advocate will:
- Connect you with campus and community resources to support your well-being.
- Help you navigate university policies to minimize the impact on your academic records while you address your health and safety needs.
- Help you understand state and federal laws.
- Assist with filing a no-cost Civil Order of Protection through the Marion County Superior Criminal Court if you are a victim of domestic or family violence, stalking, or a sex offense.
