April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

SAAM 2021 Calendar of Events

Important Spring Dates:

Last day for Virtual Office Hours will be May 13, 2021. Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10am-noon. Drop by for 5 minutes or an hour—to meet with an advocate about what's going on with you, how to support a friend who may be a survivor, see what services are available to survivors on and off-campus, or ask a question we may know the answer to. As a reminder, meeting with an advocate does NOT obligate you to report to the school or to the police. Zoom ID: 9876777146 Password: SA2020. If you have issues logging on, email survivoradvocacy@arizona.edu

 The Survivor Advocacy program will continue to offer all advocacy services remotely through Summer 2021. 

We are dedicated to the health and safety of all in our community especially the immuno-compromised, our elders, and those who are not given equitable access to healthcare, housing, food, and sanitation. Your safety and well-being are still (and will continue to be) our top priority. Because of this, we are not holding in-person meetings or office hours for walk-in appointments. 

Our program continues to be a resource for students impacted by sexual and gender-based violence, and we are still in operation Monday- Friday 9am to 5pm.

We can set up a zoom meeting or have a phone call. Email us at survivoradvocacy@arizona.edu or fill out the referral form to talk to a confidential survivor advocate.

Confidentiality Statement: The Survivor Advocacy program provides students who have experienced sexual or gender-based violence with a confidential place to seek support and resources within the University community. Students' names, identifying information and any disclosures they make to us will be kept confidential unless an advocate receives permission from the student to release the information to a specific third party for additional support services or other assistance.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or 'Clery Act' requires that universities publish an annual security report that includes aggregate statistics for certain crimes reported to have occurred in any building or property owned/controlled by it, any property within or adjacent to the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution, and/or used in support of or in relation to its educational purpose.  Per the Clery Act, Survivor Advocacy may be required to provide de-identified information of the type of incident you have experienced, the location of the incident, and approximate date of occurrence if it meets Clery reporting requirements. However, any identifying information about a student accessing Survivor Advocacy will be kept confidential, including any information about you specifically, or details of the incident you have experienced that may identify you. Survivor Advocacy staff will review its reporting obligations under The Clery Act with you to answer any questions you may have.

If you need any assistance to effectively meet or talk with the Survivor Advocacy Program, please contact the advocates at (520) 621-5767 or survivoradvocacy@email.arizona.edu (link sends e-mail).
