Who are the ASU Victim Advocates?

ASU offers free advocacy and support for students and employees affected by sexual assault, relationship violence, domestic violence, stalking, sexual harassment and other related experiences. Advocacy is a safe and confidential starting point for ASU students and employees affected by these issues. ASU Police Victim Advocates are confidential except when required by law to report, such as when there are concerns for child or elder abuse and self-harm or harm for others.

How do ASU Victim Advocates serve ASU community members?

ASU Victim Advocates

ASU Victim Advocates provide a confidential place to seek support, information and assistance if you have experienced a sexual assault, intimate partner violence or stalking. While this service is located within the ASU Police Department, meeting with a victim advocate will not automatically initiate an investigation by the university or the police. They can be a good first-place to start if you feel uncomfortable or harmed by any experiences you have had, are unsure if you want to make a report, have questions regarding the resources available to you and more.

What to expect when connecting with an ASU Victim Advocate

expect from ASU Victim Advocate

You can reach out to a victim advocate via phone, email or by visiting their office which is located on the ASU Tempe campus within the ASU Police Department. A victim advocate will coordinate a time to connect with you in the manner you prefer, this could be over the phone, by email or in-person at ASU’s Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, West or Polytechnic campuses. During this meeting, they will invite you to ask questions regarding next steps, potential consequences for the person who harmed you, seeking support and more. You can share as little or as much as you like during this confidential conversation.

While ASU Victim Advocates are not a 24-hour, 7 days a week service, they may respond to provide support after hours when a report is made to the ASU Police Department. Therefore, if you are attempting to reach the ASU Victim Advocates outside their usual office hours (Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) there may be a delay in response.
