Contact Advocacy Services

Advocacy Services can be reached at (414) 288-5244. Advocates are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide support and information about campus and community resources to help you heal.

Victims' Rights

Please understand a victim is entitled to resources and other support from the university regardless of whether the victim wishes to file formal complaint with the police or Title IX Office. Barring unusual circumstances, a victim will remain in control of all decisions that are made about his or her healing and courses of action.

Advocacy Services is a confidential resource, meaning that they will not report what you share with them to the Title IX Coordinator.

Advocates are available to accompany you to obtain medical treatment, assist in obtaining a stay away directive or restraining order against the perpetrator, address any class, housing or other concerns you may have with regard to your education as you heal, and provide information about filing a report with law enforcement or the university's Title IX office.

Report to the Title IX Coordinator

Contact Title IX Coordinator if you wish to report the incident to the university. Even if you choose not to report to law enforcement, you have the right to continue to pursue your education in an environment free from the effects of sexual violence, including any ongoing harassment.

You may also tell a trusted faculty or staff member, who will work with the Title IX coordinator to provide you with support and resources. All university employees, including student employees, are required to report information they receive about allegations of sex-based discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct to the Title IX coordinator. The information reported will be kept private.

Reporting to campus authorities is not the same as reporting to the police.

The university will report the incident to MUPD for Clery Act compliance but will not share any personally identifiable information without your consent.
