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.

We 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.

Why Make an Appointment of Referral?

  • Discuss how the incident may be impacting your work, and or academic experience
  • To better understand how experiences of sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, sexual harassment may impact your health and wellbeing
  • Learn about your rights and reporting options
  • Discuss what happens when you make a report to the University through Title IX or UCIRO
  • Discuss how to make a report to the police
  • Make a safety plan
  • Learn about protection orders
  • Get connected to specialized trauma-informed therapy
