In addition, the Advocacy Initiative is a network of students, faculty, and staff who are trained to work with individuals in the wake of sexual assault. Advocates are both compassionate and knowledgeable, and they can provide the vital link between persons in need and available resources.
Advocates will ensure privacy for discussion of sensitive topics and will maintain heightened sensitivity to personal information disclosed. However, Advocates cannot guarantee strict confidentiality. Advocates are required by federal law to report if they have knowledge of a sexual assault.
If you have questions about working with an Advocate or would like more information on how to become an Advocate, contact the UCC at (504)865-3835.
