FALL 2020 UPDATE for Survivor Advocacy Program
The Survivor Advocacy program will continue to offer all advocacy services remotely for Fall 2020.
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 will no longer hold 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.
Additional information: You can stay up-to-date on the campus response to COVID-19 by visiting the University of Arizona's COVID-19 site

For Staff and Faculty impacted by gender-based and/or sexual violence, please see the resources page for staff-specific resources.
The Survivor Advocacy program provides confidential support and advocacy services to student survivors of sexual and gender-based violence. We provide advocacy and services rooted in empowerment and community-based support, are survivor-focused, and relationship-based.
The Survivor Advocacy program assures confidentiality to all who utilize the department's services. All of the advocates are certified by the University of Arizona’s general counsel office as confidential advocates and are afforded privilege under Arizona state law. Students' names, identifying information and any disclosures will be kept confidential unless an advocate receives explicit permission from the student to release the information to a specific third party.
The Clery Act requires that universities report general statistics regarding crimes or incidents that occurred on campus. Specifically, statistics are kept related to crimes that may have occurred in any building or property owned/controlled by UA, 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 our educational purpose. Per the Clery Act, Survivor Advocacy is required to provide a report of the type of incident you have experienced, the location of the incident and approximate date of occurrence. Any specific identifying information about a student accessing Survivor Advocacy will be kept confidential, including any information about you specifically, or the detail of the incident you have experienced. Survivor Advocacy staff will review the Clery Act with you to answer any questions you may have.
