What is ASU Victim Services?

ASU Victim Services

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 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 does ASU Victim Services provide support ASU community members?

ASU Victim Advocates

ASU Victim Services provides a confidential place to seek support, information and assistance if you have experienced a sexual assault, intimate partner violence or stalking. Victim Advocates are part of ASU Counseling and Health Services, and work with you to determine if you’d like to report the incident, seek medical assistance, get mental health support, and more. This service is unaffiliated with ASU Police, and while a Victim Advocate can support you through the criminal justice process if you have a desire to do so, 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.

A victim advocate will coordinate a time to connect with you in the manner you prefer, this could be over the phone, video call, 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.

Since ASU Victim Services is not a 24-hour, 7 days a week service, if you are attempting to reach a Victim Advocate outside their usual office hours (Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) there may be a delay in response.
