The Livewell Confidential Advocates provides a safe and confidential space to help students, faculty and staff identify what they want or need after an incident of sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking or sexual harassment has occurred.

Confidential Advocates do not report incidents to the University. We provide safe places to help individuals understand their rights and options including what options they have for reporting both on campus and in the larger community, always with the understanding that it is up to the individual to decide if they would like to report or not. Speaking with an Advocate does not trigger a report to the University or police. Advocates are confidential and your information will not be shared. If you do chose to make a report they are available to support you through the reporting and court process.
