Brittany Larsen (Bowhall)

LiveWell Confidential Advocate

Brittany is a safe and confidential resource for students, staff, and faculty impacted by Title-IX related issues.  Brittany can explain reporting options (with police and/or through the University), connect students to resources (mental health, medical, DRS, etc.), safety plan, and advocate for academic accommodations.
